Walthers 933-3087 Goldenflame Fuel Co. (Scale=HO) Cornerstone Part#933-3087
The prototypes for coal and oil dealers like the Walthers Cornerstone Goldenflame Fuel Co. were well known to everyone in town. Shoehorned alongside mainlines and sidings, these businesses sold coal for home heating by the bagful or the ton and delivered to your house. Commercial accounts like small factories and stores were also serviced. As oil furnaces became common, many dealers expanded their line to include home heating oil too. Whether in a big city scene or a quiet country town, this kit looks great next to the tracks of your HO Scale railroad. The model is complete with detailed concrete storage silos, a small office with attached scale platform area, oil tanks, truck filling rack, coal conveyor, hopper unloader and fencing to build a complete scene. And like the prototypes, the buildings are easily arranged to fit in odd-shaped spaces. Typical of facilities commonly seen in the US from the 1920s to the 1960s, Goldenflame Fuel Co. can be built as a free-standing business. Many fuel dealerships were often operated by the local lumber yard or grain elevator, opening additional industrial ideas for using other Cornerstone kits and accessories.
