Re: Tank Car Deliveries To Gas Stations?

There was a Texaco dealer in Maine on the Maine Central, named Jimmy's. They had a gas station/garage/truck stop style diner and oil delivery business between the mainline and Washington St. in Auburn. They had no large storage tanks so product was unloaded directly into an underground tank for the gas station and into delivery trucks. This rail business lasted until about 1970.
