I like it. The B&W treatment really works here.

thanks Walter, I like the reflections on the glass and the way the sky was rendered and the overall grimy gritty feel to the image

I might go back and experiment more with this

Sorry Gord. This just doesnt work for me. When you convert a half decent HDR to B&W it often helps cover up a lot of bad spots but this one doesnt do that. It looks gritty. I know you say you like that and thats your choice. But the sky is pretty dismal looking. If you made this from a well done HDR it would be a killer pic on its own without adding the gritty effect. Is this GO station Burlington?

I like the shot, it has a time machine feel as you look out through the glass walls. Only thing I would have done is stepped forward a couple of feet (meters) to not have the pole and first glass frame in the shot.

I rather like the 19th century look, with the factory smokestacks in the windows.
It would, I think, be enhanced by cropping out the modern signs on the right and left sides, and perhaps cloning over the 'GO' on the floor.
Overall, a very nice treatment.

Oh, lot of good comments here...
There are some elements here that could really make an interesting photo, but you would need to be a wizard in photoshop. Create two images from you original -- interior bright and clean, ultra modern (yeah, its a GO hut, so ultra modern is a stretch). Loose the no smoking decal and the reflected go on the window. The one on the floor is an interesting graphic element. Exterior process as you did, grainy, gritty. Now combine the two in photoshop, turning the interior glass surfaces transparent to reveal the exterior post industrial.
