European Railway Station Where is it No. 47
Author: andersonb109

I'm finally down to the last few without give away singnage. I think this is the first post from this country.

Swiss Railways markings above the entrance. Zurich? Only been there once, and didn't look back from across the street.

That'll be Basel, Switzerland.

Basel is correct. A really large and busy station with classic facade.

Finding a photo of a Swiss station without the railroad's name in it would be quite a challenge.

But it does have the German, French, and Italian acronyms for the Swiss Federal Railroads.

As it should in a country with 4 official languages.

Just curious, what's the fourth language after German, Italian and French?

I think it's Romanssh.

It is indeed Romansh, predominantly spoken in the canton of Graubünden (Grisons), which means if you've taken the Glacier Express all the way to St. Moritz (or any other train on the Rhaetian Railway, for that matter), then you've encountered the language without even realizing it!

Darn, I actually knew this one, but was too late!!  It is a cool station, with a very busy traction station right in front.
