In which Swiss city is the train station shown in the attached photo located ?

Second question: On what date did this station open, exactly 20 years to the day after it was ravaged by fire ?

Bonus for posting a photo of the train station before the fire.

I know this one, this was an easier one :)

This is the Lucerne train station. It opened on 5 Feb 1991 after the fire on 5 Feb 1971.

The picture is from wikipedia.

That is correct. It is so nice that they preserved the façade of the old station in front of the new one. Imagine how the people of Lucerne felt when it burned in 1971 and that magnificent cupola collapsed. It kind of reminds me of last year's fire at Notre-Dame de Paris when the flèche collapsed. You wake up the next day and for a split-second you hope that the day before was just a nightmare.

Aw, Skowpole,

Don't be such a party-pooper. Every once in a while you have to put a big worm on the hook to attract the fish. If you want something that is not so easy, I'll give you one that is a bit tougher. It shouldn't be that hard since I know you have been there.
