Birmingham New Street Railway Station
Originally opened in 1854. It
had the largest single-span arched roof in the world,
accommodating a number of railways.
In the 1960's the station was completely rebuilt.
The most recent £550m redevelopment is nearly complete.
Have a look at one entrance.
The station is almost finished. It looks quite futuristic to me.
Trains come and go underneath the station and shops.
I guess they are going to call it Grand Central.
In the shot below, I am standing on the walkway with
my husband. The reflection shows the back of the Odeon Cinema
and another nearby shopping centre.
This reflective design goes all the away around
the building which seems as large as a
football stadium. I will have fun coming back
to seeing the finished station.
Only 26 minutes from Coventry by train.
