    I finally got somewhat of a tank loading platform built for EVM Chemical...The base & roofs are scratchbuilt from styrene, & everything else came from the scrap box...

    Great, Charlie!

    I wish I had a scrap box like yours! It has some gems!

    It looks real good Charlie, that layout of yours is sure filling up with heavy plant. Time for expansion don't you think? :D

    I assume that's a "Gulf" tank car there. It's funny, but when I see a Chevron station, I sometimes call it a "Gulf station." I'm only 33 years old, but I guess Gulf made a really big impression on me before all the stations changed to Chevron...

    Rory,
    That's an old Atlas car that's close to 30 years old, I guess.
    Around here, all the Gulf stations became BP's 5-10 years ago.
    Tyson,
    I'm still workin on that one...:)

    No problem Charlie! Rory in the south and east it was standard oil stations that became chevon (I used to work for both companys) and like Charlie said the gulf became BP (worked for them also).:)
