Astonishing, huge abandoned station at place with only 500 residents!

Interesting item, Ed. And what a beautiful station. I crossed the France-Spain border back in June 1982, at a place called Irún, on my way to Lisbon, Portugal. I remember the long wait due to the different gauges, and there were children begging for money.
