Hotel Estacion

The Station Hotel, it can conjure up images of posh city centre accommodation, it can bring to mind any number of grotty back street pubs.

At Cuarto de Pulgada the Station Hotel is a colonial looking building adjacent to the FCPyF depot. A bit run down perhaps, certainly not five star rated, but it’s handy for the trains if nothing else.

The loco watering tower has been moved nearer to the turntable to make way for the hotel. As usual when adding a new building to the layout, I’ll leave it in place for a while to see whether or not I like the appearance.

I reckon it should pass the test so I’ll probably get around to bedding in the buildings and trees at CdP soon. This will include building a new portal for the bridge at the end of the station because the Hornby water tower has made this structure, with its integral tank, obsolete.

The hotel is a laser cut MDF kit built by Brian Mosby, of Mozzer Models and 24/7 Developments, purchased second hand via the Narrow Gauge Railway Modelling forum.
