Valencia North station opened in 1917, and I think is quite beautiful. Enjoy. Photo 2 shows that it's right next to the bullring.

Imagine this train shed filled with steam locomotives. It's a stub terminal.

The ticket office retains its old charm.

I love old European railway stations.  They are beautiful AND they generally have lots of trains.

This is a Public Service Announcement to those over the age of ______ [ insert number here if applicable ] who were confused about this station as I was:  This is what was for many years named Valencia Termino, at least to non-Valencians.  It was originally named Norte after the railway that built it, but probably after RENFE-ization it became Termino.  While one could still find references to Norte  -- for example, the Valencia map insert in a 1965 Cook's shows it as Termino (Norte) -- D. Trevor Rowe's Railway Holiday in Spain of 1966 or Spanish TT of the early '70's, as examples, referred to it only as Termino.

This station is on the south side of the city centre;  "Valencia North" made me think the Central of Aragon's Alameda had come back from the dead.....

Best, SZ
