Once upon a time…

_MG_3387 _MG_3390 _MG_3424Once upon a time, there was an international railway station where people had to stop and wait when crossing from France to Spain or vice versa. People stayed, chatted, visited the surroundings providing a fantastic human scenery. Those were times when travelling didn’t mean hurry (well, mostly due to the state of technology at that time) and the railway was a source of exchange of news, goods, fashion, faces… A gate to cross looking for a better future or to seek for refuge when you were forced to leave.

Now, as life changed in a “need-for-speed” way, these buildings make us dream about those who passed, what is lost, where are we moving…

    • Lo raro es que no lo hayan demolido. Pero la verdad es que podían hacer algo para adecentarlo. Donde está, con la afluencia de turistas creo que sería rentable.

      • Hace tiempo leí que había un proyecto para recuperarlo, pero fue hace mucho…Me imagino que en este momento es impensable…Espero que no se lo coma la vegetación y acabe convirtiéndose en un redescubrimiento dentro de un par de siglos!!! 🙂

      • Supongo que un cierto mantenimiento le darán porque organizan visitas y hay un apeadero activo de Renfe. Pero, tal como van las cosas,… quién sabe!!!

    • Thanks, John!!!! These are the “unprocessed” pictures. I’ll post the processed ones soon as I think that the “retro” look fits great for them.
