Train station on track to be sold

Like they say, all good things come to an end and for a certain historic train station in Lagos that has finally come true.

The train station was unveiled in 1922 and is still loved by the locals. In a typical style of the area, it is decorated with rare tile panels which were produced by a 19th century factory in Sacavém.

Unfortunately, the train station closed in 2006 to make way for a new one which is located just 200 metres away.

A British couple planned on buying the station as it fell prey to vandalism and abandonment. Their plans were to turn it into an art gallery and cafe, all while keeping the charm of the building.

Somehow, things did not go according to plan and the business deal fell through. This means that the station is still up for sale along with the property it stands on which will be sold separately.
