The train stations, I suppose, became a social statement in the industrial age, when people looked back with pride on their history, and looked forward with confidence to an ever-improving future.

We seem to have lost some of that.

That's surely anotherinsightful commentory from you, Barbarian... Upon reading your words, one has got to be even more braveto be able to realise one'sidealstaking into accountwhat else we may have lost ! Thank you :)

That is a glorious building, Bahadir.

England, London, there is one station which retains that kind of splendour ... St Pancras.
There is a horrid tendency to destroy great old buildings .... arcane monuments and museums to the function they represented ....

Train stations, bus stations, post offices ...

To replace those with glass and alumium.

So good to see that some of the great ones are surviving.
Thanks for posting this.

Glyn :)
