Historical Train Stations

The densest railway system in the world belongs to Belgium. Belgium's oldest main line is that between Brussels and Malines, opened on May 5, 1835. This resulted in many architectural masterpieces, some examples:

Railway Stations.

I saw the photos and Some of the photos are not looking like the railway stations. Those are the amazing photos. I am not having any words for it.

Wow. Brickwork, ironwork, and towers are favorite features.
Some of these really show imagination and craftsmanship above the norm.

Interiors of a couple of these ought to be classed as national treasures.
