Further to the above, I've just had a look at the photos of what is around the station. There is this rather interesting brutalist fountain across the road, that could be good to scratch build and relocate to the empty space.

The fountain of youth...

A paper mock up - rather pleased with it! A few low hedges and benches could be placed around, for weary travelers to rest on - as suggested.

Thinking about Austrian stations, I would expect to see a fence/glass barrier with benches against it with a curved glass canopy over the seats, an outdoor dining area at the bistro. Given the integrated nature of the transport system there's plenty of seating to allow the weary passengers to await their connection.

Quite agree, need to outfit the bistro with benches and parasols!

Here's progress on the fountain, quite tricky work.

The fountain construction is basically complete! Looking at it now I think the dimensions are a bit iffy. I think the scale is good but that the troughs really should have more of a square-ish rather than rectangular shape. But I only have limited photo angles on the thing, so I don't think it looks too bad.

Thanks Nick - LOL I'll see what I can do - may have to be stationary PVA water though :D think resin probably OTT for such a small surface area.

Proper drainage channels now carved into the fountain. It's been an enjoyable cameo project, can't wait to install it!

Thank you DannyBoy!

While waiting for some filler to dry, I spontaneously decided to make some basic copies of the beautiul Ree Modeles containers they recently released. Just for fun and to put on my own layout - I'll paint in some interesting creative schemes and try out some graffiti skills. :D

You can have a look at the REE selection on https://ree-modeles.com/ - I highly recommend them!

Paint scheme done. May try PVA for adding water - can always remove if no good! I'll be adding some lawn and benches around too.

PVA for the water in the fountain should be fine, especially if you use a few thin layers.
