Dave's Super Service
Gas Station
================

("O"/027)
New/OB Yes $ 75 An illuminated layout-ready Gas Station reminiscent of the box-style filling stations that have been around since the 1930s: measures 11 3/4 inches wide by 8 1/8 inches deep by 4 5/8 inches tall.
Photo of the front of the station.
Includes a tall roadside sign to attract motorists and a small billboard for messages plus vintage-style gas pumps for a layout with steam power (as well as newer-type gas pumps allowing an alternative modern-era look for a layout with Diesel power).
Another view of the station.
Comes with the original instructions and a sheet of colorful sticker signs.
Photo of the gas pumps, signs, instructions and the sheet of sticker signs.
Grade 9 original box (creases; window partially separated) with both inserts.
Photo of one side of the box showing both a vintage scene and a modern look.

We "bench tested" the lighting and it works perfectly! Just add your own vehicles and figures and boost the realism of your layout! Has bay doors that open so vehicles can be parked inside. You can also use this gas station as a centerpiece for displaying die-cast autos.

Items Made in Japan

??? Set of Railroad Figures Ranges
from

Fair
to
Excellent
Yes $ 25 Seven (7) composition Railroad Figures that were made in Japan -- probably in the mid '30s: earlier version with the figures on square bases.
Photo of the Conductor and the Engineer.
The Conductor is in VG condition with some paint loss but he is completely intact; the base is mildly distorted. The Engineer is in VG condition with some paint chips but he is completely intact.
Photo of the Red Cap and the Porter.
The Red Cap is in Good condition with some chips and paint loss; the base is distorted and the figure leans a little. The Porter is in Excellent condition with very few flaws.
Photo of the Female Passenger, Policeman and Male Passenger.
The Female Passenger is in Excellent condition with some minor paint chips and a possible repair. The Policeman is in Good condition (missing the Billy club and some paint chips). The Male Passenger apparently stayed too long in the club car wooing the female passenger and looks like he had a rough night; he is in Fair condition with lots of chips and paint loss.

Each figure is approximately 3 1/2 inches high and the underside of each base is stamped "JAPAN" in caps. The designs for six of these figures were apparently copied from the metal Lionel #550 "Miniature Railroad Figures" set sold from 1932 to 1936 while the design of the Policeman was probably copied from the Barclay Policeman.
File photo showing the Lionel Version.

A very interesting and very unusual item from "The Far East" made during a time when that area of the world was gearing up for war!
