St. Pancras International - London, UK



Built almost 150 years ago, St. Pancras is widely famous for being one of the two terminal stations of the Eurostar who crosses the English Channel, with direct connections to Paris and many cities of Belgium and the Netherlands. In what it happens to be an exception to the logic of the european railway stations, St. Pancras has a complete separate sector for the international terminal within, with strict security measures and controls, similar in that sense to an airport. Thorughout its history, this station went through three different stages: the first one was during its first 100 years, when it was planned for the transportation of goods but also ended as a passenger hub. It was damaged by the german bombings during the Second World War. The second stage was in the decades who followed the 1960s, when it was planned to be demolished. And the third, the recent history when it became an international rail icon.

Liverpool, UK: Lime St. Station










The impressive Lime St. Station is the oldest railway station in the world still in use. Although it was remodeled several times during several decades, its last general restoration was the most relevant, with the construction of new platforms and the opening of passenger services to scottish destinations.

London, UK: Waterloo Station



Currently planned to be the station with the largest number of passengers in Europe, London Waterloo is far from other railway examples of the city because it was not originally intended as a terminal, but as an intermediate stop to the City of London, on the other side of the River Thames. From 1994 to 2007, it was the starting point of the Eurostar towards Paris, which ended with the opening of St Pancras already renewed.

London, UK: Blackfriars Station



Blacfriars is one of the many railway stations lying on the River Thames, in this case at the North Bank. The beginning of Blacfriars dates back to the days when the underground station was built, in 1870. It grew up until the modern station we can see nowadays, with a demolition in the middle during the second half of the 20th Century. Blackfriars is specially interesting because it connects both shores of London, with the structure acting as a station and as a bridge.
