Fuel Transfer Depots



Custom Designed Tank Farms and Fuel Transfer Depots for O Scale Model Railroads

4-Unit Tank Farm


Place this Tank Farm along side your track or in an industrial  setting and start fueling your diesels or tractor trailers! This tank  farm will look at home in any industrial setting from the 1940's through  today. The structure consists of three 2 1/2 inch diameter horizontal  tanks approximately 6 inches long and one 3 1/2 inch diameter upright  tank approximately 6 1/2 inches high. Footprint is approximately 16" x  8". All tanks contain manhole covers and gate valves. The horizontal  tanks also include fume nozzles. The structure is shipped in three parts  - the horizontal tank and stand, the steps and platform from the  horizontal tank to the upright tank and the upright tank itself.


Bulk Fuel Transfer Depot


The O Scale Fuel Transfer station  can be used two ways. The main building can be used as a track side structure fitting over track to allow tank cars to move under the refill spout. It may also be used as a standalone facility in an industrial setting where the big 16  wheeler tractor-trailer rigs can be parked underneath for fuel loading.  The service facility footprint is approximately 16" x 18". The two tanks are about 7.5" and 9.5" tall and approx. 4" in diameter. The shed  measures approx. 12"L x 7"W x 7 1/2"H with approx. 4 1/2" of clearance  inside for track and train. It comes both undecorated or decorated with  your favorite RR names. Please navigate to the ON LINE Store (Track side  Structures) for options and prices.

​The transfer depot is  shipped as three pieces - the shed and each tank. The tanks connect with  one pipe while the smaller tank connects to the shed with a second pipe  connection under the catwalk.


O Scale Small Loading Platform

This small loading platform was designed to be used track side to load hoppers and tank cars. The design incorporates a piping system that extends from the back of the platform along the inside of  the roof and end just above the railroad car. Foot print for this  platform is 7" (L) x 6 1/2 " (W) x 7 1/2" (H). The twin stairs adds an extra 4" on each side for a total length of 15". 


Fuel Loading Platform with pump house

A pump shed has been added to the basic Fuel Loading Platform. This structure contains two swing up platforms, fuel lines that can swivel 360 degrees and two lamp posts. As with our other structures this platform can be modified (length, width, number of pump stands, lamp posts etc) to suit customer  preferences.
