This is my first attempt at a simple dio. I stumbled across this Esso station and it became my inspiration to try to build something similar. This will be a Zephyr station, they seem to be uncommon and I wanted something different.

Cool where did you get the pumps?

From one of the big model kit vendors at the Detroit Autorama. I should have bought more than one, he was a lot cheaper than ebay!

Glad I could help a little bit! Here's a thought: Have a truck pulling in carrying the new-style Zephyr sign while a 1/25 scale worker lights up a torch to cut down the weathered one... :D

Cool idea !

Nice work so far Ron, I like the new roof shape, keep it going

If you're still looking for toilet fixtures, here's a 1/24 set from eBay - sink, toilet, tub.  There are others available - 1/24 is half the regular dollhouse scale of 1/12, so some dollhousers build in that scale.  I've also seen these, or something very similar, in Hobby Lobby.
