It is a book rich of nice images of stations and terminals. I am using it for a job related to architecture of metro stations, and it is being very usefull.
Great pictures throughout the book but the picture on the cover is misleading

I am a mechanical engineer & with model trains as a hobby & I bought this book since it came up on the search results or recommendations on Amazon for train stations, hoping to get ideas to create a modern miniature train station on my small basement layout. I bought it thinking it was a book about modern train stations / hubs, but train related infrastructure is just 25% of the book. It appears that this book spends equal parts to air, water & road transportation infrastructure. I learnt things I never knew about like the Falkirk Wheel & the King's Cross station. The photos & illustrations are really good. So, even though this book wasn’t exactly what I was looking for, I have decided to give it 4 out of 5 stars.
