Wojciech Karliński project shows train stations in Poland. Since the fall of communism in Poland in 1989, the railway is in constant transformation. A big part of train stations, lose the primary meaning. Part of them fell into disrepair, and some were rebuilt or renovated. The first train station in Poland was established in the 1842 year. Now is a clinic there. According to data in 2017 in Poland are 2655 stations and stops. The 268 from them are the busiest ones and 1000 travelers use those every day.
Many times the wrong train took me to the right place.

How soon country people forget. When they fall in love with a city it is forever, and it is like forever. As though there never was a time when they didn't love it. The minute they arrive at the train station or get off the ferry and glimpse the wide streets and the wasteful lamps lighting them, they know they are born for it. There, in a city, they are not so much new as themselves: their stronger, riskier selves.
Train station Grudziądz in Poland by Wojciech Karlinski
Life is a train ride, and at the many stations along the route, people important to us debark, never to get aboard again, until by the end of the journey, we sit in a passenger car where most of the seats are empty.

If you are happy in the station, then the station becomes your train! In other words, if you are happy where you are, it means that you are already travelling! Happiness is a great journey.

Train station Międzylesie in Poland by Wojciech Karlinski
Better to get off the train at this station. Than to do it later, when it's too late. Remember Time doesn't wait!

If a train doesn't stop at your station, then it's not your train.
