Looks good Mike.
I like the junked car and the used pallets.
Small details like that sure add to the overall look of the scene.

Thanks for the picture of the vent pipes.
I have finally planted my gas station where it will reside and now must remember to add my vent pipes.

Thanks guys! John we always got everything on pallets from the parent company. Tires, 35 gallon drums of gear lube, cases of oil and you name it, so we always had a pile of pallets out back.

I really like the scene, Mike, with the station nestled in the valley and the ridge rising to tower above! Great job!

I got the soda machine, kids and bicycles and some more vehicles. The soda machine kinda sits in the shadow of the roof between the window and the bay door so it doesn't photo well as I would like but looks fine in person.



Here is a street level view from the right



And one from the left



Finally a panned back shot to see how it fits into the layout overall

Great looking scene Mike. And pretty good looking pictures too. Any plans to weather the road?

As you think, so will you be.

Excellent, Mike! Everything about the scene is plausible. I really like the way it all "fits" together in the last photo.

Very nice scene, Mike.

I especially like that shot from the left, with the tunnel portal showing over the roof of the station.

Mike, I was in your area late yesterday (stayed at the lovely Bryson City Sleep Inn ) and I have to say that your layout truly captures the feel of your area..... Nice Job. Danny

Thanks guys! Rick I was going to stripe the road then weather it. I checked with some of the old timers at the local DOT shed to see if the center line was double yellow, single white or what back then and was informed that on a secondary road such as this there wouldn't be any striping at all (and sometimes no paving either ), so I guess I can go ahead and weather it. Danny you should have let me know you were there. I could have got you a free tour of our local Lionel Museum and a free lunch as well!

And a nite shot with the newly lit gas station included:

Mike,
I like it and all the details really add to what was a very nice scene already.
Looks as if the pole holding the sign out front is nice and straight now for it seemed to be leaning in earlier pictures.
Also a very busy station so I guess it is the only one in town.

Danny,
While not a big fan of Lionel although I still have the set I had as a kid, the museum is very nice and very large with a working layout complete with animation.
Definitely worth a visit if you are ever out that way again.

Thanks John! That poor sign has gotten whacked a zillion times while detailing the scene, it's a wonder it's still standing . In the future I think signs like like that will wait til I'm done before getting installed.
