Gare de Lille Flandres, Lille

Lille-Flandres is the city’s main railway station. The terminus for SNCF Intercity and regional trains, it was named Flandres in 1993 when the Lille-Europe station opened. It was built by Léonce Reynaud and Sydney Dunnett for the CF du Nord. Construction began in 1869 and ended in 1892. The station front, from Paris' Gare du Nord, was dismantled and reassembled in Lille at the end of the 19th century and an extra story and large clock were added as well. Dunnett added the Hôtel des Voyageurs in 1887 and the rooftop in 1892.
