I want to built a proper diesel refueling area. I have all the proper things & I need a snapshot of how to put them. Do anyone have any snapshots?

BNSF built a new diesel refueling area along its mainline in northern Idaho, just southwest of Rathdrum Idaho. You can search for Rathdrum, Idaho and move to the west and south. The coordinates of the main refueling building are at 47degrees 46'52.70" N, 116degrees 56' 45.23" W. It is a large facility when you include all the yard track included. I do not know if it has street view but if not, from overhead you can get a good idea of what is involved.

I'm looking at it right now. What kind of track is that at the refueling area? Is it on the download station?

Here is a picture of a diesel fueling station. Add a couple of storage tanks and you have it.

What's that yellow tower, that around it?

But you have 2 examples now - a smaller outdoor facility as shown by rweber95 and the huge Rathdrum, Idaho enclosed facility shown on Google Earth, where the trains drive in through the building to get refueled. I'm sure there are many more variations that exist.
