    I would appreciate any good jpgs of Blairs model, Ernies gas station.
    My Uncle, now passed had a ESSO station in Montrose, PA of an identical place.
    I would like to kitbash it on my own.
    He used to treat us to a Yooho chocolate drink from his cooler when we visited.
    The memories that place bring back!
    Thanks in advance.

    Seems to me there was a good article on modeling early filling stations in Railroad Model Craftsman...but I've been looking at recent editions as well as older issues from my collection so I'm not sure where. Try the model train magazine index and see what turns up.

    Also check the Library of Congress online. They may even have drawings and photos in the Historic American Engineering Record or other databases online.

    Either of these sources could give you more information in a general sense, maybe not directly related to Ernie's, but you never know!
