Leaking roof at Budapest Nyugati pályaudvar

Budapest’s Nyugati pályaudvar (western railway station) is one of three rail termini in the capital of Hungary, and to my eye the grandest.

Step inside and there is an ornate booking hall.

The main train shed is also quite a sight, except for the fact that it leaks!

    Is that the station designed by Eiffel? I saw the Eiffel station from the outside and I don’t think this is it.
