    I like the older Coke machine, Arl! Now, roughly what size (in real life) are these things? I'd like to do a few in O scale.

    They are about 72" tall. Of course, machines vary based on capacity and what not, but 72" is about as tall as a man, and it looks good on the layout at that size. :)

    A dime for a dollar coke? Gas was a quarter a gallon then, now it's 1.50. Water was free, now it's a dollar a bottle. Oh how I wish for 1950 prices and 2004 wages.:) FRED

    Hey guys I found a website that has a bunch of older style "Coke" machines. Provides for more ideas for those '50-'60s era layouts.

    Oh, yaaaaaaaaaaa! [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] Although I prefer a stout (cellar temperature, of course!), I've got a handful of bottled draught with the widget rocket in the ref., which will surely enhance the Christmas eve experiance! But man can't live on stout alone; I have a caase of Carlesburg in the celler (see my sig :D).

    would using a block of square stripwood be another way of making these? (less time consuming?)

    Very good idea though, the ESTR is about to get a huge population of these things (well they are everywhere in 2006!)

    Arl- Excellent concept!

    That 50's era Coke machine is just what I need to round out the Black River depot's platform. :)
  12. This may be of use in a modern station

    Don't forget these!

    Those 24-hour valet bits are great! Please do not forget the Japanese renditions, with Pocari Sweat, whisky, beer and the like! The perfect diorama for this would have a passed-out, broke sailor slumped next to it.

    More here..... :thumb:
  15. Thanks for the link, Sunburn; I think I'll add a couple of them "Adult" ones to the vending area in my Truckstop

    The enclosures (side topic)

    Those are the funniest! You'd have to label them somehow, or just tell everybody that they are where you buy porn. Otherwise people might think that they are just a propane enclosure cage.

    Great stuff. Already ready planing on firing up the printer when I get home. In the mean time located some vending machine pics that I figured i would share.

    Does this machine have a slot to put your ID to verify your age? :D :D If not, where were these when I was in High School? :D :D :D :D

    BTW Thanks everyone for the graphics. I've been looking for something like this for awhile. Great work! :thumb: :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:
