2.0 Victoria Station

Victoria Station amuses me. Imagine two bus stations the size of the Chicago gGreyhound station (one for incoming, one for outgoing). Then, a two-level train station with nearly twenty tracks of trains that only head SOUTH of London. Then, an Underground (Tube) or Subway station, besides. Add in a shopping complex big enough to have two grocery stores, four newsstands, two McDonald's, and a variety of other restaurants. Including a place with sushi, shrink-wrapped and ready for sale.

Victoria Station is a small city center, in American terms. It is amazing.
