Discussion Central Railroad Station Commentary

"Among the boldest early structures that steel made possible were the railroad passenger stations, whose entirely new demands created awe-inspiring spaces."

"The Central Railroad Station in Newcastle, a bustling town colonized by the Romans, is of unusual interest. Its three lines of trackage curve along an embankment as they swing through the city and station, each group of rails spanned by a separate 60-foot-high arched roof. This top-lit triple sinuosity and the elevated cross-track passerelle give the shed excitement."

— G. E. Kidder Smith. Looking at Architecture. p132.
