New York's Pennsylvania Station will have its 100-year anniversary on 27 November. What are your memories of the terminal?

Send us your stories and photos of the railway station and we will showcase the best on the BBC News website.

The terminal, commonly known as Penn station is a commuter hub and one of the busiest rail stations in the world.

The station was built in the grand Beaux-Arts style complete with Doric columns and 150-feet ceilings.

But the structure was expensive to maintain and with the rise of the motor car its owners sold the building off to make way for the development of Madison Square Garden in the 1960s. Controversially, the structure was demolished and the station moved under ground.
