Remarks & Notes 
Station building of Basel SBB in the blue hour, seen from the Centralbahnplatz. From Wikipedia: In 1902, the "Schweizerische Centralbahn" was transferred to the newly created Swiss Federal Railways (SBB). The new station, which has since been known as the "Swiss Federal Railway Station" or "Basel SBB", was one of SBB's first major buildings. The new Basel SBB station, designed by Emil Faesch and Emanuel La Roche, was put into operation on 24 June 1907. The station building is characterised by its extraordinary length, as the Basel SNCF station with its customs facilities for international transfer traffic is "attached" to its west side. The asymmetrical floor plan of the station shows to the outside the representative appearance of the federal buildings at that time. The interiors are wide and high. The reception building is aligned with the central axis of the Centralbahnplatz and shows a huge glazed Tudor arch window between two clock towers under curved hoods. Behind the façade one could suspect a terminus station, but this is not the case in Basel.

An ongoing/growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of railroads because most of us don't go out after sundown or before sunrise. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)
