The train or the trip? :)

Also some detail of the polychromatic brickwork, including custom-made granite cills and delightful little cast iron ventilation grills along the skirting of the building; they could've used cheap bricks but they went way-out with these :)
The windows are also great - even if they are a pain to maintain:
