Auckland’s Grand Central #Railway#Station opened in 1930, operating Platforms 1 - 7.
The steel-frame construction faced with brick and granite is a piece of Classical New Zealand's #architecture ; breathtakingly high & beautifully #designed ceilings, large granite pillars stand tall connecting above to the below equally classical shiny #marble floor design. ~ What is not shared is lost ~

A quick trip on @Amtrak 's Coast Starlight from LA up to the Bay Area - whilst I miss the parlour car, I do love the Starlight!! We left LA and had a good run up the coast! This pic is of the platform at San Louis Obispo. Thanks for the ride @amtrak!
