K-Line Texaco Station

From the 'Forgotten Files' archive comes this nice Texaco filling station the photos for which were taken months before I started this blog. This station, while marketed by K-Line back in, ohhh, the late '90s or early 2000s or so, was not original to K-Line. There were several versions of the station put out by another company in the 1990s (whose name now escapes me) and were later re-marketed by K-Line who sold these as accessories for their O-gauge trains, but I'm here to tell ya they're way too big! If you place a 1/43 scale car on this thing the station would absolutely dwarf it. However, it works perfectly with 1/32 scale vehicles. Because this is not a fully fleshed-out building but rather a 'flat' it really does excel as a shelf display. Enjoy

There are no lights in the building but cardboard bottom can be easily modified or removed to accompany light installation


  1. A really beautiful toy, Ed! The design is just perfect!

    1. Thanx Mauther! It really has nice lines - and if I had the talent would probably make a decent paper model :-)
