Statement from Ixion Model Railways Ltd
No further work has been done on San Fernandez Norte but I have been considering the short platforms. If the station building is located between platforms 1 and 4, making 2 and 3 into dead end bays but allowing the outer tracks to pass under a road bridge it will appear as if these two platforms were on through tracks and supposedly extend beyond the road. This style owes more than a little to the stations on the Great Central Railway’s London Extension.
The assumption is that the lines now forming the FCPyF’s Ferronor division were once part of a larger network which stretched to the north and west of San Fernandez, though only the lines to the north remain in use.
With the abandonment of the western lines the station has fallen on hard times, not only are platforms 1 and 2 derelict and overgrown but track 4 now ends just short of the bridge, which has been bricked up to provide additional strength as road traffic has increased in weight.
