I recently purchased a small gas station kit from Full Steam Ahead. I have not build a service station yet and was also interested in trying one of Joe Rutter's kits. Full Steam Ahead is located in Owen Sound, Ont. about 3 hours north of my home. The model is from an earlier era than I model but I do recall seeing a similar structure in Vermont back some years ago. These kind of structures seem to hang around a long time in New England. I thought this structure might be interesting to add to the White River Division, if not it fits the era well for my narrow gauge modelling.
My kit arrived less than a week after ordering it on-line. Included are a group of well detailed colour instruction sheets, a ton of nice signs, good looking castings and laser cut wood walls, doors and windows. The gas station comes with a bonus building a garage all for just under $35. The footprint is nice and small....gas station dimensions are 5 1/4″ x 1 3/4″ and the garage measures 2 3/4″ x 2 1/2″. Joe indicated the kit is based on a photo of a real gas station....link to the site is below....George Dutka
