COOL PLACES TO CATCH A TRAIN

From The Weather Channel.  Their focus appears to be on the aesthetic: no discussion of whether there is a coffee bar with a good view of the trains.  London's Kings Cross used to have one.  I recall a good one alongside Platform 1 at London Paddington, not a bad place to observe a commuter rush that is the antithesis of the south side of Chicago Union Station.  If there's not a coffee bar, a bratwurst kiosk will do, such as the one just beyond the bunters at Frankfurt (Main) Hauptbahnhof.  Sorry, Milwaukee, those vending machines just don't cut the mustard.
