Not too long ago, stations like Al's could be found at every busy city intersection and along most major highways. Premium was 25 cents a gallon, maps were free, restrooms were clean. There was a mechanic on duty who could fix anything. And Al always wore a spotless uniform when he came out to pump your gas, check the oil and wash the windows.
Introduced in the late 1930s, box style stations like this sprang up from coast to coast and remained a standard well into the 1950s. Combining the office, restrooms and service bays into one structure, they provided a uniform, neat appearance that attracted motorists. Lots of windows made them bright and cheerful, as did the enameled steel walls decorated in company colors. Although newer stations have taken their place, many survive today as independent garages, body shops, retail stores and offices. A few have even been converted into private homes!
Authentic styling looks great on any vintage or modern street scene. Optional pumps are included to match your era, along with colorful decal signs for the finishing touch. Just add vehicles, figures and interior details, available separately, to create a busy scene anywhere along your layout. Finished Model Measures: 4 x 6 x 2-1/16 10 x 15 x 5.8cm
NOTE: Unless specifically indicated above, structure kits and built-ups do not include any pictured figures, vehicles, scenery, track, or trains. These are included in manufacturer provided images to demonstrate how the product may be used on your layout.
