Ahh Pat, you touched my heart! When I was a kid, my Dad's uncle owned a station much like this, and I hung around there a lot! For a kid it was great, because it was sort of a meeting place for everybody anywhere around the town. Listening to all those guys talk, I learned a lot. Uhh... some of which I probably shouldn't have .... :) :) Superb job on this Pat! :) :) :)

This is really good! and I like the painting more than the photo. Just one personal preference thing missing is the bit of tree at top left
