#ThursdayDoors – A Train and a Station


I absolutely adore train stations. I’m not sure why – perhaps I traveled by train often in another life. Anyhow, one of my favourite places to visit (as you may already know) is Kingston, Ontario, and downtown there is an out-of-commission station, now used as a tourist shop and information booth.

The doors, in my opinion, are spectacular. Please click on the images for a closer look.

And finally, behind the train station there’s an old engine sitting on an unused length of track. I tried to take a picture of its door, but it’s kind of squashed in where you can’t see it well.

  1. Loved seeing your door gallery, Linda. That secret door looks so intriguing. Maybe used to get away from the Paparazzi. 🙂


  2. I love anything to do with trains, train stations included. In NYC I grew up with Grand Central — a stunning work of art from top to bottom. I am lucky that now I have Union Station in Downtown Los Angeles, beautiful too, in a different way. Very artistic both of them. Both with wonderful restaurants. Any excuse to be at either of them and I jump at the chance. Love your photos here, Linda. xo


  3. I’m with Norm: the back door and the secret one are my favorites as well.



  4. We seem to be syncing — I did a train station, too. But not as lovely as your shots of the one in Kingston.
    I love your trips to Kingston — I get to be nostalgic.


  5. Train stations are where important, romantic scenes take place in so many classic movies. That secret door to the basement must have some good stories.

  6. Nice one Linda. That is a lovely building. The back door is my fave along with that secret side door 🙂


  7. Wow! Linda, was this especially designed to make me happy? I love trains, train stations, door and I love that you included the architectural details of the station.


  8. absolutely charming! Does make me want to visit Ontario and feast my eyes upon these doors!


  9. I like that little secret door. Wonder what it leads too.


  10. beautiful selection of train stations


  11. Charming. And the red phone booth…a nice touch. ☺


  12. Oh, how delightful! I too love trains and train stations. Very romantic. I ride trains whenever I can. There’s an old steam train in Oregon that runs along the beach and it has a balcony, so you can sit on top of the train and feel the wind.


  13. Train stations are wonderful. Great pics Linda!
