Image: Railroad Stations (Great Architecture), by Brian Solomon (Author). Publisher: MetroBooks; First edition. edition (December 31, 2003)First Railroad Station Opened (1807)
-- The world's first recorded railway station was The Mount on the Oystermouth Railway (later to be known as the Swansea and Mumbles) in Swansea, Wales, which began passenger service in 1807, although the trains were horsedrawn rather than by locomotives. The oldest terminal station in the world was Crown Street railway station in Liverpool, built in 1830, on the locomotive hauled Liverpool to Manchester line. As the first train on the Liverpool-Manchester line left Liverpool, the station is slightly older than the Manchester terminal at Liverpool Road.

Read: Railroad Stations (Great Architecture), by Brian Solomon
-- The exquisitely photographed journey begins with a look at the role of the railroad in the 19th and 20th centuries, from the passenger train's heyday to the present time, when nearly abandoned stations are being refitted for other uses. Find out about the different forms of stations, and how the needs of the region influenced the architectural style. Finally, see some of the classic stations barely changed since the first trains stopped there and take a fond look back at some lost terminals -- such as New York's original Penn Station -- now gone, but not forgotten.
