16 Photographs of Beautiful Old Train Stations From Around the World

Built in 1910, the awe-inspiring architecture of Pennsylvania Station was been held for decades as some of the finest in New York and certainly many average people had never seen anything so grand. The demolition of this landmark in 1963 is sometimes cited as the reason for a significant architectural conservation movement in the U.S. All we have of Penn station now are photographs.
