Does anyone have any old photos of the imperial train station? I thought I saw some on this thread, but I guess not... Please post them if you have them, or point me to them. Thanks!

The old photo of the station I am looking for looks like this one below, or rather the same angle.  



Thanks again!

Looking along the street toward the Pavilion:



Looking in the general direction of where the tracks would have ran.  You can see the locomotive sheds in the distance:



A slightly closer look at the sheds:

The only word I can find: shocked. It wasn't that horrible during the Soviet times. Noted the abundant Nazi symbols?...

I'm disgusted by the amount of swatiskas found in the photos. It's unbelievable what some people will graffiti for fun or out of hatred onto a building worth so much historically. They are absolutely wonderful photos though, bright, clear, and so very large! Your ability to photograph things Scott never ceases to amaze me.  ;D

Does any one have an image of one of the Tsarist train in the Vitebsky Vokzal (station). I believe Belochka was the one that posted this information. It was a train engine and carriage housed in a glass enclosure. It would really be nice if someone would be able to post one. Thank you.
Isn't learning fun?

All we may say is that restoration work would be huge...it seems that all the rails are not in state of use anymore...does the project of imperial train include Vitebsk?
