Thanks to Jack Sim, Craig Osbeck and Old Gas, I found the information on the "Air Station". I still can't believe I have never come across one of these before. Of course it is 95 years old. That's older than me or Jack Sim! -- cry

Close up coming soon. All pumps will be for sale. Not the air station.

Thanks to everyone for the kind words.
I have met some fantastic people both buying and selling Petroliana.
I was taught if you offer a fair price when buying, it always comes back to you.

Just the other night I called on a pump for sale north of here. I asked the guy what he wanted for it and he told me $xx. I replied that I would pay more than that for the pump as it was too cheap. I ended up getting all four of his pumps for a reasonable price. On top of that, he is working on getting more. It even sounds like there are a few good ones coming!
