This is a small home heating oil facility from a kit. I had an area with enough room for a siding.

I primed the tanks with cheap gray primer and then rubbed on some grimmy black and used one of the instant rust products.

The platforms and ladders are plastic and I rubbed them down with some thickened wood stain which gave them some texture.

I have room here to add a coal bin so they can add that to their retail as well.

Very nice idea , we had a facility like that in our city but it went out of buisness and the land had to be dug up and then covered up with clay !!!!

I have a couple of those kits, and combined them with some of the Model Power storage tanks and a Walthers building and a Pikestuff office hut. It's a nice, compact facility occupying a corner of the layout....

They normally cover with clay after the EPA cleanup is done to seal the site. Or at least that is what I have been told.
