Old Railway Station

This is one of the best looking buildings in Kuala LumpurL,with a roof designed to withstand up to 2 feet of snowfall-some would say it was slightly over-engineered for the tropics.

Now,sadly it's a shadow of it's former self,surrounded by ill-conceived elevated highways and to add insult to injury,since the completion of the new KL Sentral station complex most trains don't stop here anymore except for the local commuter service.

Next to the station building there is an old run-down hotel that too has seen better days.

Opposite is another fine example of colonial architecture,the headquarters of KTMB,the national railway company
