    I am posting this outside the sticky, because there may be toomany pictures to open with dial-up, and I don't want to impead navigation of that thread. I'm also not sure how long these will stay on the server.

    On copyright, gaugers may download and use these images for modeling purposes.

    Here we go!

    Newton Oil Co. - A Trackside Industry

    Sidewalk on the left was a siding in it's day

    This dock faced the rails

    as well as this one

    This longer dock, I believe was only for trucking, as it is now

    If anyone needs bigger pics or another angle, just let me know, it's close to my house. Also. you should pull these down to your hard drive if you are interested becase they might take them off the server. Depends if they consider them "rail images"?
