Sutherland, NE
Although not "icebox" stations with porcelain enamel panels, these two stations still bear Texaco stars and stripes. There may have been porcelain panels originally on one or both of these buildings.

This former Texaco station in Lodgepole looked vacant when these photos were taken in 2006. [map]

This former Texaco station in Sutherland also appeared vacant when this photo was taken in 2012. There was probably another building, now gone, which accompanied this service bay building. [map]
