and this is the same corner in 2014
Although the builders of the mall had promised besides massive replantations of trees and ecological parking also that the train station will be incorporated into the design of the mall, of course nothing of it all became true. In time , all that remained of the rail was stolen and scrapped, leaving today only the hedge line that marked the route, abandoned tunnels that turned into hotbeds of infection and shelter for homeless and junkies and a visible piece of rail at the bridge near Satul de Vacanta. Even the station at Satul de Vacanta was barely recognizable , where there were once concrete train platforms, the whole surface was paved and converted in to parking and the ticket station became a huge garbage bin. I found by chance a weathered road sign on one of the pillars that warned “Attention to the train” and these are the last vestiges of what was once in the park, an attraction that our followers and your children will never get to enjoy . Today during the summer season there is a train car that connects the mall and Satul de Vacanta , that runs on the walkways of the park, forcing pedestrians to get out of the way , which until this year was a stinking diesel tractor that filled the park with smoke and made an infernal amount of noise when it passed by , ruining in an instant any pleasure of walking through the park. Only this year someone had the good sense to replace it with an electric one, which still runs on the alleys of the park forcing pedestrians to get out of the way. We thank the mayor , and the city hall for this and everything else that is happening in Constanta…..
