It's great!

Bur the stickers on the pumps have rather a Shell than an Octan colour scheme. It sticks out a bit. Maybe you want to change that.

And as I saw the telephone I somehow had to think of a toilet attached to the store where travellers can do what they have to do. :wink:

For me, as all of your creations, this looks very nice. I like how you used the fence part for holding the tools.

Thanks, I agree it's a great way of combining more than one sub-theme together......a gas stations, hardware-ish store, pay phone, post box, it will grow from that ! :classic:
Keep you know looking ! :wink:

Fantastic station :thumbup: :thumbup:

I really like how you fit all the things, as shovels, in this small house, and the pump with sticker too. Ultimately I like a lot all of this MOC :grin_wub: :grin_wub:
