Just a Little Locomotive? Or a Luxury Hotel?
You might have been on a train before, but never one like this! Each cool little car of this train has been transformed into an individual epic living space. Based in Essex (England), this little train hotel is already a great attraction for tourists, so if you’re looking for an adventurous place to visit this might be your perfect spot. Or….. you can just visit vicariously through these two pages of photos. Enjoy!
In anticipation of all the future tourists and rail workers that Essex was sure to attract, the Izaak Walton Inn opened. The grand, $40,000 hotel was “modern in every detail,” with 29 rooms, 10 bathrooms, a lobby, dining room, and kitchen with a two-ton cook stove. It’s a beautiful and modern dwelling that can house up to six. Once you step inside, you almost forget that you’re standing in the belly of a caboose. This 60,000-pound rail car was hoisted by crane before it was trucked to Essex. Each car boasts lovely, rustic details as well. The birch walls in this car accent the 400-year-old reclaimed oak floor. This larger car can hold up to two couples or a small family. The modern kitchen is the perfect place to cook up some fresh, river-caught trout.
