The central station of Brussels has been enlarged and new accesses and space for shops added.

Before I entered the station I saw something new which hadn't existed before. Just in front of the Novotel, besides the station you can rent a bicycle ! Business men swing your botton on the saddle !

The new entrance which looks very elegant

inside not a lot of people, but a strange atmosphere

There only was a young man training yuggling. There was a lot of space !

When I took a picture of the wooden escalator, the lights made my photo like this

waiting for my train

a look on the other platform

and finally my train arrived

As it is very hard to find a parking space in Brussels' center, I put my car at the Waterloo station and take the train. In 20 min I am in the center with no parking worries.

That is an amazing train station. The colors in the escalator shot are very interesting. Nicely done.

Those bikes are a good idea. They are in many cities now to help keep cars out. That railway station is very modern and empty. I like the shot on the platform with its sweeping curves into the background of the picture.

It looks nice and redone! Why does the man juggle? Does he want people to give him change? Very interesting. I don't take public transportation too often but I would LOVE the convenience of not looking for parking places!

What a cool train station! You got some great perspectives too.

It surely didn't look like that when we caught our train to Paris, but maybe we were in a different section.

Very smart station.....surely it can't be that empty all the time?

I love the escalator picture! The station looks rather like an art museum!
