Re: The smoke & smell at HB?

I dunno what Zurich HB is, but the Brussels underground smells like a mixture of stale piss, Hobos, body odour and brake dust (because there is no air down there only the aforementioned ingredients).

I would be surprised if our Teuton cousins didn't keep a nice clean station but it could be something similar?

Re: The smoke & smell at HB?

Well, this isn't about smoking, but the burning-wire smell I noticed when I got off a train at Gleis 50something and disregarded because of the construction. Then I walked on to Gleis 1 and it was literally smoky/hazy and the smell was almost overpowering. Is that really from construction? Or did something happen out there today?

Re: The smoke & smell at HB?

If it's coming from near the tracks it could be from the construction work, they were doing some heavy metal cutting last week and that gave off quite a pong.

If it's from the Migrolino/Burger King end, it could be from the Raclette stall there today, or it might have been that I had a Stinking Bishop there this morning.

EDIT. My reply came in too late, yes, sounds like the burining metal smell from last week..

Re: The smoke & smell at HB?

I heard there was a Windows 8 promotion there last weekend... could be the lingering whiff of fresh MS BS?
