You're not being annoying, you're merely just failing to put forward
any sort of argument whatsoever - in fact I put forward your argument
on your behalf in my last post!


fortunately i had a better 'argument'


Indeed, a totally and utterly non-existent one.

Antwerp Central 4th most beautiful station

Fri 06/02/09 12:33 - Antwerp Central is the 4th most beautiful train
station in the world, according to the American magazine Newsweek. St.
Pancras in London (UK) is the most beautiful, followed by Grand
Central Station in New York City (USA), and Chhatrapati Shivaji
station in Mumbai (India).

The American weekly made a ranking of what it considers to be the most
beautiful train stations in the world.
(Belga)

Antwerp Central is fourth on the list.

The article is entitled 'Stations: A Destination That Matches the
Journey'.

"Among the many fine sights to be seen while travelling by train, few
are as pleasantly surprising as the terminals one passes through,"
writes Newsweek.

you can't travel by train through a terminal


It didn't say one passes through the terminals on the train though did
it? Everyone who uses a terminal station passes through it one way or
another.


it 'said' very clearly
one passes through the terminals on the train

Uh-oh... I can hear the thunderous stampede of uk.railway denizens
(one in particular) heading this way chanting "beauty, beauty, what
about being user friendly" with regards to St. Pancras!

I like it, but then again I don't have to use the tacked on Midland
platforms regularly, nor do I have to walk from the Midland or
Thameslink platforms down to the Underground station every morning.


just good exercise !
and isn't it fun getting cut up by people with roller luggage...
I particularly enjoy the crush when squeezing thru the doorway that
separates the tube and rail

I only needed to read ''American magazine'' to decide there is little
point in further discussing the relative beauteous merits of stations.

I was wondering when the Farmers Market was going to appear. Maybe never
in the current economic climate. It also seems to be developing "the
longest white elephant in Europe" if champagne patronage is as normally
as low as when I've wandered past recently.

Or use the toilets opposite the E* exits - male seems more often closed
"for necessary maintenance"[1] than open, and the Ladies has had a queue
out of the door since the station opened.

[1] As opposed to unnecessary maintenance, I suppose.

They probably want to charge rents pro rata to M&S, but the 'farmers' want
to pay the same sort of rent for a stall they'd pay the local street
market...

Probably waiting for the extra footfall that will arrive in December
with the Kent Electrics and the northern ticket hall. Currently the area
where the Farmers Market will be is a tumbleweed zone.

The Top Nine

1) St.Pancras, London (UK)


Must go there on my next London visit.

2) Grand Central Terminal, New York (USA)


This one I've seen. Very similar to the main station in Milan isn't it?

9) Atocha Station, Madrid (Spain)


I've seen it from the outside and maybe passed through the subway parts.
Didn't make much of an impression.

No space on the list for Berlin? With its open multiple levels, it's quite
an experience.
