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.
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.
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".
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.
