I saw this article on the BBC website. This is Berlins newly completed railway station. It's a beaut.



"Featuring vast glass panels it is Europe's largest station and will handle more than 1,100 trains a day."



"As Germany prepares for the football World Cup, the wraps come off a new landmark - Berlin's central railway station."



"The station has 54 escalators and 34 lifts - some offering views over the city, looking out at the Bundestag."



"It is located next to the River Spree, a few metres west of the no-man's-land where the Berlin Wall once stood."



"A sound and light show will crown a weekend of celebrations to mark the opening."



"Deutsche Bahn chief executive Hartmut Mehdorn has described it as "the most beautiful station in the world"."

I wonder how much space that would take up in HO scale?

QUOTE Australians couldn't give a Castelmaine XXXX about English football. Perhaps they should stick to cinemas.

Football is pretty unknown here, especially in Melbourne where football refers to game that is a combination of rugby, boxing and volleyball. They have just discovered it though as they have qualified for the world cup. Maybe if they win a few games it may give them some incentive to build better stadiums and on time.
