For All You Rail Fans

Postby SW RANGER » Wed Oct 02, 2019 3:22 pm

If you travel a lot, you're probably going to be in a lot of train stations on the way to your destination. But train stations can be destinations themselves.
The best ones have expansive, stunning architecture, are easy to navigate, and are just plain efficient. Philadelphia's 30th Street Station is a work of classical architecture worthy of the city's history.

Atocha Station in Madrid has a jungle amid the brick-and-concrete city. The walls of T-Centralen in Stockholm form a roving work of art.


Here are 36 railway stations to visit in your lifetime

As Rickshaw said Termini Station is rather scummy, at least it was when I was there 24 years ago.

The station in Moscow I actually a metro station and like others there it looks like a retro art gallery or a scene from a David Lynch movie.

Took a train Yangon to Mandalay earlier in the year.

No danger whatsoever, but a heap of fun. Highly recommend it.
