Murdoch17 posted a topic in LEGO Train Tech(NOTE: This model will be built when funding allows, hopefully by the middle end of this year!) Inspired by set 149 (Fuel Refinery) from 1976 as seen above (pic from BrickSet), this model takes the 4.5v era Shell refinery and turns it into a two-bay diesel locomotive / oil burning steam engine fuel depot for the modern PF age. The model features two floors with removable roof sections, and is updated for 2017 parts-wise. The included truck is inspired by set 10184 (Town Plan), and features two four opening storage compartments and two side doors for the driver. NOTE: This part goes above both ends of the locomotive refueling bay. while this part here replaces the 2 x 4 x 3 brick on the wall. The flag should be printed too. As a side note, the locomotive bays are tall enough to let any official car through, including the double stacked container car from the Maersk train. The upper floor of the depot features a control station for monitoring the flow of fuel from the tanks on the roof to the service bay, or from the tanker truck to the storage tanks. The roof of the facility comes off in two sections. The upper floor features a opening door to the tanks and staircase to the lower floor and the flow-monitoring systems. I think my brother may originally have built this truck, but I'm not 100% sure where it came from as it's been on my computer for about three years. The driver's doors open, and so do all four storage compartments. This truck fits one driver figure. The LDD file for the truck and fuel depot is here.
