Disappearing Auburn Train Station – Seher Aydinlik

I love Auburn Train Station

I have been going to Auburn Train Station for 20 years

You can catch a train to just about any place in Sydney

It is so easy

It is cheap and affordable

Sometimes feelings on the platform are sad and

Sometimes funny things happen

I love Auburn Train Station

 

Auburn Train Station is much busier than before

It’s active every hour of the day

It’s full of travellers every hour of the day

People travelling to see friends or relatives

People travelling to a hospital for treatment

People travelling to hospital to visit their sick ones

People travelling to work

People travelling to look for work

People travelling to study

You can see someone from every culture

Every nationality and every age group

Sometimes you can help an elderly

Sometimes a young person

Auburn Train Station is much busier than before

Auburn Train Station

Has 4 platforms

You need to climb 34 steps to get to platform 1 and 2

You need to climb 34 steps to get to platform 3 and 4

It’s good exercise for young and healthy people

But it was hard for some

The elderly, the sick, the disabled

Pregnant women and

Mothers with babies & prams

People with shopping bags and trolleys would struggle

It could be hard and stressful

It could bring you to tears

Not even a walking stick could support you

And you could fall half-way

 

But Auburn Train Station is much easier than before

Some years ago it was given 2 new lifts

People seem so thankful while they look at the lift

They know the old station without it

Auburn Train Station is much easier than before

The old Auburn Train Station is disappearing

You could see your destination and timetable on old wooden displays

Nowadays you can see everything on a digital display

Auburn Train Station is much more presentable and busier

Hellos and goodbyes seem to have a smile and a hug nowadays

There are cameras everywhere

Auburn Train Station is so modern and nice

The ticket sales office, the information office, the coffee house, the newsagency

Auburn Train Station is much cleaner and secure

I love Auburn
