a place for zinesters - writers and readers
My favourite train station is Parliament in Melbourne. When I first came to the `big smoke' I was amazed that you could have a station so far underground (ha ha)! Parliament has this weird and hilarious futurism about it, with it's blue tunnels, white space-station looking walls. It's particularly eery when you're down there late by yourself and all you can here is the cheesy elevator music playing faintly in the background and feel the wind being pushed down the subway tunnels by the incoming trains. Oh, and the mega-tall escalators are pretty cool too. If you're running down them to get to Platform 4 to catch the train coming in two minutes your eyes start to go funny at the end and you can't see the stairs properly.
