I understand from one of your previous posts that it is no longer just a terminal, but Station with subways?
Thanks Kelly, and yes, the station now has 4 floors, of which three have tracks. The top (original) and first floor down are still "terminal style". The bottom floor has a tunnel under the front building and allows entrance/exit from both sides.

Here's a shot from the lowest level, looking into the tunnel under the main building.

A850 + Min 50/1.7


Btw, I really like all your shots of 4014 and 844, it's a bit too far and costly to go and see them myself (allthough one day I might), but your pictures do them justice
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

Thank you, Pieter!

That's a great shot! Ok I see. Hope I get a chance to see it in person someday!

As for the Big boy and all the celebration for the 150 year anniversary of the completion of the Transcontinental Railway, it was fun, but very crowded with Railway fans (As Mathieu mentioned "Foamers") so it was difficult to get good photos. I think there were a lot of fans from Europe. I know I met one from Italy and one from Germany that came just to see the Big Boy. There are many videos posted on Y tube of its journey from Cheyenne to Odgen and back.

Kind regards,

Kelly

Nice adventure reportage Pieter. As mentioned before, the different perspective makes it an interesting set of views on Antwerp we don't see often.

Nice to see a city from a slightly different perspective, so to speak.

Let's hope that the new tower won't turn out to be an eye-sore itself :)
Two days ago? That was sunday, the same day I took the pictures. Didn't you see me walking around with the Dyxum badge on my bag?

Next time you're in Antwerp let me know, I can always treat you to one of our famous Belgian beers (or something else)


Ha, what a coincidence! I can almost expect to be in your photos as I walked below the tower around the time you were there.

I hope I can come back eventually! (I picked up a beer for me at the Koninck brewery but I didn't drink it yet).
See my webpage!
A-mount stuff, and few 43 stuff.
