Goodbye trains..

14th June 2016

In my my place trains were very popular in the past. Nowadays cars are becoming more and more popular. As people have become richer they prefer cars and I think it is typical for western European societies.  Well cars are more comfortable than trains but you must wait in the traffic jams.So one of the railway station in my city was closed. It is in a bad condition. What a shame in the past it was nice and friendly for the passengers.




Love from Upper Silesia.

Thanks for visiting!!1

  1. It looks as if it might have been nice in the past but I think it has been closed for awhile. It's the same way everywhere.

  3. I hope your governments respond by improving public transport with more spending, rather than spending on roads that will just remain congested and even more people will buy cars.

  4. The railway station in my town is also closed but has been bought by someone and turned into a restaurant. Much better than just letting it go to ruin I think.

  6. We would rather have good reliable public transport than having to endure traffic jam. It is much cheaper using public transport.

  8. It would be a shame to see cars replace public transport. The auto and gas industries did that in California beginning the 1940s. Now they're trying to create a completely new public transportation infrastructure. Give me trains (good trains) any day!
