    Does anybody have any pictures of an engine refuling "station"? I want to model one on part of my layout, but I need to know what they look like.

    If they have a fueling station it's usually just a concrete pad with a pump and hose. However alot of shortlines and branchlines don't have em'. They just have a fuel truck meet the loco and transfer the fuel. The real shortline here and my model shortline do it that way. They also don't have a sanding tower (my layout does), they have bagged sand delivered, throw the bagged sand and a worker into the bucket on a frontend loader or backhoe, raise it up and dump the sand in. That said, Kalmbach's book "Locomotive Servicing Terminals" is a real nice reference for shortline to mainline.

    Here's one...

    from Conrail's Oak Island yard in Newark NJ. This was taken in the mid 1980's.

    This is the 4th try at posting this.
    This is the refueling station I am going to assemble for my N scale layout.

    I had one of those sets (can't seem to find it now) but I thought it was pretty good.
