For reasons I cannot esplain, I got this idea that I wanted my trains to pick up oil from the drilling operation and transport it to it's next point of processing--refinery or ?? I know nothing about oil production and transport. But I have no space nor inclination to model a refinery.
I want to model oil fields--derricks and pumps and tanks and shipping facilities before the refinery comes into play. I've looked at prototype pix and searched for references........and come up with not enough (for my limited skills) to model from. Kalmbach covered oil in volume 1 of the Industries series. It's out of print and junky paperback copies are commanding big dollars.
Anyone want to sell their volume 1 inexpensively? Or point me to other inexpensive resources? Post pix of your layout showing same? Or ???
Any help appreciated. PS: I've got a bunch of Lionel derricks and pumps plus some tanks for a tank farm. I plan to use that stuff. So this will be a toy--not an exercise in prototype museum display work!
