Today is a big anniversary for railroad fans: It’s the 144th anniversary of the completion of the US transcontinental railroad. The railroad facilitated travel from the east to the west coast of the United States.
Train stations have been around for over 200 years—ever since the United Kingdom constructed the very first structures in the early 19th century. Many of these early 19th century stations reflect the grandiose architecture popular at the time, while those built more recently are more likely to have simple, abstract designs.
To honor the history of these buildings, we gathered together a list of some of the most beautiful stations from around the world. For more photos of each building’s stunning architecture, visit the location pages below:
I really enjoyed my first trip to the states. The people were nice, the weather was amazing. We stayed in Brooklyn, Middlebury and Chicago. And although the trip has ended it was only the beginning of a new journey. :)
Take yourself back to a time with trains were the main way of traveling! My most recent font, Station, is inspired by the vintage transportation, and includes 7 unique styles from simple inlines and drop shadows to inner patterns and heavy drops.
The Grand Opening of the new typeface is currently on sale.
The legend goes like this. There was once a high school girl whose body got brutally cut in half when she accidentally fell down a railway and got ran over by a train. Now an onryō (vengeful ghost), she haunts train stations, railways and highschools carrying a scythe, cutting her victims in half across the torso, just like how her body looks like. She is known to be very fast, moving creepily using her arms, which also makes the “teke teke” noise, hence her name.
