Invergorden Railway Station is well worth a visit even if you're not travelling by train. We visited to see the murals of scenes that could have occurred in the 1940s during WWII. Click on the location above to find a previous post with better examples of the murals (Including a CI)
I thought the platform showed something a little different to fit this month's ToM.
This is an original contribution to the theme we haven't seen anything to do with railways yet. I love the station murals and from your well chosen poverties we can enjoy a few as well as admire the depth in this image.
All it lacks is a steam engine covering everybody in a dark cloud :-)
Funny idea painting some scenes of the past to the wall of this train station. You combine the two perfectly, the modern looking train to the right with these excellent murals to the left - old an new. Definitely not boring to wait here for the train, there is always something to look at.
A great TOM choice. What a beautiful station! The cleanliness is amazing. Thanks for the reminder to click on the town link. The murals are amazing; a cost-effective way to make the station special and a reminder of a very dark time. When will we ever learn? I've been listening to a book by John Grisham that features WWII in the Pacific. I think he may now be off my list of writers HLJ, Pay
The first moment was an illusion as I really had the feeling of seeing real people looking out of the window. Only at a second glance I noticed the "fake" people.
These scenes with painting blending with reality are always an interesting play with fiction and reality.
Nice play ...
