Very attractive -- the canopy and lights on the left give the picture a nice border, too.

Liking the cant of the train here, gives it a sense of speed and power. :)

Thanks. I think you'd like this station, the track curves sharply at both ends, allowing for some good head on shots (something I recall you talking about in a recent journal entry). Right next to the station is a short stone bridge, from the road under it you can get nice shots of trains crossing it as they enter or leave the station. Right opposite the platform, is a long station garden where you get shots looking up at the locomotives. And to top it all off, during the galas they have some trains passing though the station at speed, so you can get shots of the locomotives working hard. The place is heaven for photographers =D
