Uppsala Central

A street view of the main building at Uppsala Central now part of the Travel Centre incorporating a bus station and huge bicycle park 56273 with underground car park. The station building was opened in 1866 by King Charles XV and designed by the State Railway's (SJ) Architect A. W. Adelsvärd in what he called Dutch renaissance style. The façade is plaster-covered brickwork and the roof is of zinc plate painted with black linseed oil-based paint. The former circulating area inside the building is now used as shops and restaurants with outdoor seating. In the old days (pre-2011) before the Travel Centre was built it was very crammed when a train arrived and disgorged its load. Now there is a lot of circulating space underground and on the half-mile long platforms; I'm sure a lot of people will miss the blast of warm air and the waft of newly-baked cinnamon buns on entering through the platform-side door on a cold winter's day...
