For decades, Bangkok’s stately Hua Lumphong terminus has welcomed workers into Thailand’s capital – and served as a jumping-off point for many a backpacker’s Thai adventure.

But the 105-year-old transit hub’s links with much of the rest of the country will soon be severed, as services shift to a gleaming new US$4.8 billion railway station across town.

The main building was built in 1916 with designs by Italian architects commissioned by King Rama V. With its renaissance revival columns, grand atrium and stained glass windows, Hua Lumphong is much beloved in Bangkok for bringing a certain faded majesty to a city smothered by unimaginative high-rises, condominium blocks and shopping malls.
