Tim Dunn visits Weymss Bay Station in Inverclyde – and architectural gem on the west coast of Scotland. He also explores the engineering marvel that is Blackfriars station in central London. It is the only station to span the full width of The Thames. The glass station was built on the original railway bridge and even provides half its own energy from its solar roof. There’s also a look at Sao Bento station in Porto, Portugal. A beautiful Beaux Arts style station in Porto’s old town, with its blue and white-tiled booking hall, it has now become a tourist attraction in its own right.
