Another truck for a standard gauge layout. Texaco used to have the best Christmas trucks (most people like Hess). They are still available at many train shows and on eBay. After Shell bought Texaco I bought a dozen trucks, I knew Shell wasn't going to keep around the Texaco name or traditions. Posted by Hello

Reminds me of what Lionel did to IVES. I'll never forgive them!

I believe Chevron bought Texaco, but I would know this only because of the wailing this afternoon on the local PBS radio station. After sponsoring Saturday MET Opera broadcasts for about 60 years, Texaco's new owners abrupted ended their patronage. How much did we make last quarter? Don't need no culture in America-- only more money.
