Unlike many stations that are open, or have high vaulted overall roofs, Birmingham
New St was a really dark and dingy affair. Very busy with lots of good traffic but
I could never get used to the oppressive air and the sense that the station was being
"squashed" by the shopping centre that sits atop it.
