Like the Vista project - this kind of retro futurism seems to be coming into vogue.

For a Japanese, Gare du Nord is a pretty quiet train station. Irrelevant, from his point of view. In a town of 3,000 a 10-story flat block is tall. A New Yorker will dismiss it.

Waterloo is not really busy compared to stations in the mainland. At some times in the day it's almost quiet. From a European point of view, it's not even in the top 10. It may be relevant for those who enter London through it but, in a European perspective, it's not. St Pancras is the only rail station that's worth noting since it connects Britain with the mainland, whereas Waterloo is used my commuters. When HS2 gets built, many more stations will acquire more importance in the European network.

The only real troll here is SE9 which picks up random negative views I have expressed, leaving out on purpose every positive one I have given, just to dismiss the negative ones as 'trolling'.

For example, I think the V&A extension is appropriate to the museum, generally cool, and I like it.

But since I don't like the Tate Modern extension, SE9 will dismiss a negative comment by me (or by anyone else) as trolling, because he's incapable of conceiving dissent from what he thinks.
So ignorant. Where do I begin?

1) Tokyo is the only city in Asia with rail infrastructure larger than London's (and even Tokyo's isn't bigger by much). London's rail infrastructure is much bigger than Shanghai, Beijing, Seoul, etc. Paris's rail infrastructure is probably larger than the latter too.

2) Waterloo may not be as large as some Tokyo stations, but then no Asian city, including Tokyo, has 14x railway termini to compare with London's.

3) Waterloo handles far more passsengers than St Pancras. You'd have to take King's Cross + St Pancras to weigh against Waterloo.
