Famous Train Station Clocks

I’m pretty sure that at some point in your life you have seen a train station clock, but do you know which are the most famous ones? And have you been to them?I would think that the most famous of them all are the ones found all over Switzerland. They are super iconic.

They were designed in 1944 by a Swiss engineer and a clock manufacturer to be used across the country’s thousands of train stations. When Hilfiker, the engineer, added a red second hand in the shape of a baton used by train staff, the clock acquired a national icon status, and I would venture as far to say global status.

Besides the Swiss train station clocks, here are a few more that we think are world-renowned:

Flinders Street Station, Melbourne, Australia.
