Hello everybody! Couldn't help myself- picked up another restore opportunity to keep me busy. This one I haven't been able to pin down an exact "born-on date" yet but the architectural style is 1938-40 something. It also has an accessory building that will be nice to have for supplies/storage. Hope to start cleaning out and getting a good handle on it here soon.....Pics below are current and sometime in the 60's. Plan to take it back to the original.

That is a nice building. I saw it about a month ago. I noticed the canopy missing a piece. There are several nice stations close buy.

Looks like good bones to start with again, best of luck!
Is the Sinclair station across the street visible in the vintage photo still there?

It’s still there but not in very good shape.

All the best of luck with your next project! I enjoyed watching your Sinclair stations restoration, hopefully this one is newer and better shape to start with. Thanks in advance for posting the journey on this one!

Finally getting a start- but taking it slow since the heat here is stifling!
The bones are good, but lots of work to do inside and out. Cleanout will start as soon as the temps drop into reasonable range...

I've already found some cool items that were left behind over the years.

Looks like a cool (no pun intended) project…what will this be used for when completed?
