      Bulk Oil Dealer Articles


      Rail Model Journal had a series of articles and scale drawings related to bulk oil dealers in March, April and May of 1997.  They showed a number of competing dealers in three different towns in Colorado.  Aerial photos showed it was not at all unusual for two or three competing brand dealers to be located adjacent to each other in the same part of town, and sharing a common industry spur track.
