This train station was also a hotel. Plans for the future are to re-open the old hotel and run a high speed train to Paris (like the Eurostar).
UPDATE: The Eurostar now runs from this station instead of Waterloo Station. Some changes were made to the station during a refurbishment process also. Unfortunately, even though the refurbishment was done in fairly good taste, the original was far more atmospheric in my view.

Nice shapes and infinity effect. The door breaks the pattern and gives the picture variation. The soft light is really nice and really brings out the best of the bricks.

Bien vu Dan ! belle perspective de cette suite d'arcades métalliques, cela rappelle les pavillons Balthar (architecte français), ou bien encore de Gustave Eiffel, je suppose que cela doit être de la même époque (fin de la deuxième partie du dix-neuvième siècle).
Seen well Dan! Beautiful perspective of this continuation(suite) of metal arches, it calls reminds pavilions Balthar ( French architect), either still of Gustave Eiffel, I supposes that it has to be of the same time (the end of the second part of the nineteenth century).

Great composition, Dan. An amazing amount of textural details is visible on the brick building and the metal cores, and colors and lighting are also working great. Well seen!

Well seen for sure! Really good use of patterns and textures here. Great clarity in the shot and an interesting perspective too.

Very fine architectural perspective! I think it could be cropped a bit more on the left, just before the brown drainage pipe. But I would also like to see a bit more on the right.

Well it does give you a sort viceral kick when you see it, this is what my wife always calls it for a joke! Good view of a much photographed subject, I've added it to the Stations them.
