Molfetta Station

This is the entrance to the Molfetta train station. You can go either north or south from here, up or down the coast. Most trains run the Bari-Foggia route, but some go as far south as Lecce and as far north as Milan. I catch the train here to go to work in Bari. The trains are usually pretty reliable and run more or less on time (a relatively flexible concept around here!). They are not clean, but they are affordable and safe, so I'm not complaining. For tales of some adventures I've had on the train click on this link.

(If you click on the photo to enlarge it, you can see the reflection of the green shutters on the building across the street!)

It's so clean! The shutters do catch the eye.

I got some great shots while visiting this station. In particular, the salesman selling magazine and knick-knacks. I took the shot from across the room so it was a really neat perspective. I got another on the tracks and if viewed in black and white, it appears as if it were a hundred years ago.

This reminds me of the railway station in Catania in Sicily, although I always seem to arrive there in the predawn hours.

Loved your story of the train ride. :-)

My commute is counter traffic so I usually get a seat on the train and frequently, on the bus. That's what happens when work is further out away from the city.
