Take one picture of this old structure while passing by and it will be enough. It's not even close to resembling Grand Central Terminal in NYC or even Kazan Train Station in Moscow.

The train station is redone on a grand scale to show off the gas wealth like other buildings in Ashgabad.When you see this building this is similar to the other building on Ashgabad.

A station that has been refurbished with Marble on the outside yet otherwise it is located near downtown in a residential part of Ashgabat.
