Olten Train Station 2019
(dedicated to Walter Zimmerli)

Olten is a major hub railway station in the canton of Solothurn, Switzerland, at the junction of lines to Zürich, Bern, Basel, Lucerne and Biel. As a result, Olten is a railway town and was also the site of the main workshop of the Schweizerische Centralbahn (Swiss Central Railway) which became a major workshop for the Swiss Federal Railways.

Although Olten only has 18,000 inhabitants, the station is used each day by about 80,000 passengers and is one of the 10 busiest in Switzerland, busier than even Geneva. The Station serves 1,100 trains a day. In this photograph for a brief time, when the station is empty, one can enjoy the building and the vastness of a Swiss Railroad Station.
