A nice large railway station, clean facilities and places to have a drink or bite to eat. I imagine it would be great to see a steam train standing at one of the platforms.

York station is clean and well managed with a good choice of places to eat and drink. I've enjoyed the surprise visits by steam locomotives whilst awaiting my own train on a number of occasions!
