That's it! If I remember correctly it was his plane when he was Vice President and after he became President, he wanted to keep it. I believe it was able to land on his airstrip at his ranch.

Where Is This?

A couple of hints to start this one off. It is in Texas, but not near Route 66. Looking for the name of the town. You probably have to be from there to know how to pronounce it.

I think it's located on a HO scale model railroad. It is just too perfect.

That looks like the Smith Mansion between Cody, WY and the East Gate of Yellowstone. It's rather famous in Wyoming. There have been lots of newspaper articles all over the world about it.

That only leaves 276,000 square miles to choose from.

That's it. Most folks around here pronounce it kitty-quay. It's the closest town to Caprock Canyons State Park and it's still off the beaten path. I'll see if I can find a pic of the other station across the street. Someone must prune that tree, I can't imagine it grew that way on its own. Ken, you must be familiar with the area.

My dad drove truck for SOCONY Mobil. Which had the big red flying horse as a logo. SOCONY is an anagram for Standard Oil Company of New York. So maybe this station is in New York State somewhere?
