|I bought some of the Johnny Lightning American Graffiti Dioramas several years ago with the thought that I could scavenge the parts to use on the railroad.||I also had an Walthers O gauge Speeder
shed that I thought could be re-purposed somehow on the layout.
|I had an epiphany that these items
could be combined to make a neat little country gas station. I had this
small space that needed something and I thought a gas station would be
perfect use for it.
The color of the siding was almost a perfect match but I repainted the front doors, windows, and porch roof to match the shed's green trim.
The foundation/ floor of the Speeder Shed was removed and the shed front doorway was enlarged a bit.
|I added a side service door cut from a
Plasticville interlocking tower The station is mounted on a piece
of aircraft plywood and is a going to be built as a diorama
The chimney is bashed from scraps left over from IHC engine house brick
I added vintage roadside barriers to protect the signal tower.
