demolished now but still standing in the period we are modelling
see below also for photos
of Hotel Switzerland and the Armbruster Hotel
Clicking on the description of the drawings will download two page PowerPoint
files with HO-scale drawings of the S and E sides of the building (for printing) and
the photographs used as the sources for the drawing.
If you don't have
PowerPoint, you can download a PowerPoint viewer
here. The evidence is strong for
the S side but we still need photos of the E side. We're not planning to model the
west side (and the north side abuts the Hotel Switzerland). We are going to compress this
building for modelling to fit on the layout.
The page size of the PowerPoint files is smaller than the drawings and you will
have to move the drawings around and print them in several parts for HO scale.
