            "Lesneyville". Wish Matchbox would start using something like that on certain vehicles as opposed to "MBX" in place of a town name. The old playsets look great; and are detailed to the point they wouldn't look out of place in a railroad layout. Today's look too unrealistic. But then again, the 1960s didn't have the same toy safety rules.

            They are pricey, however, in decent condition. Thus, I really need to stock up on my HO scale buildings. Close enough in size, not as hard on the wallet.

                I sure would like to get one of those two-story BP stations, but they are getting harder to find. I will have to make do with the later single-story, the version I also received as a childhood Christmas gift. I'll have to track down the b/w photo of it sitting on our living room stereo cabinet.

                  I want to live there. Shrink me down, stuff me in a Mustang No 8 and roll me around.....

                    I want to stop in with, let's see, I'd probably be driving the #6 Ford pick up, so stop and get one of those gas station hotdogs, along with a big fountain drink from the BP Station, then fill the tank, and go chase the fire engines to the next Matchbox emergency in Lesneyville….being a kid was such fun times

                            There are times (like this) I wish I hadn't literally melted my single-story BP station when trying to "blacken" it with soot (from matches) to make it look like it was on fire...so my Matchbox fire brigade (didn't have the fire station until my senior citizenship, a few years back at a toy show) could 'save' the gas station from burning to the ground. All out in the back yard, under the Guava bushes, no less. Ah, youth....wild and reckless...

                            As for the fire station, I wish the design team had figured out how to have the bay doors open outward, so you didn't have to remove the vehicles from inside just to open the doors. Did you notice the added 'realism' in the fire house, the 'sliding pole' or 'fire pole' from the (nonexistent) upper floor barracks to the bays? I think that's a 'nice touch' by the team, even though they couldn't figure out how to make the doors work 'right'...

                              Didn't realize that about the bay doors swinging in...I guess everyday is a beautiful day in Lesneyville, so the doors can be just left open.
