Pavlovsk station, near St Petersburg. Known as 'vokzal' by the locals - called after Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens, in London.
The station was built in 1837 to take visitors from the capital to the pleasure gardens created at Pavlovsk.
I matched many of the paint colours at Pavlovsk and in St Petersburg (for example the exteriors of the Admiralty and the Menshikov Palace) and they are proving quite popular.
An excellent book has recently been published on the history of Vauxhall Gardens.
