Perm II (Russian: Железнодорожный вокзал «Станция Пермь-II») is the main railway station of the Russian city of Perm. It is also known as Perm-Zaimki or simply as Perm station.

History[edit]

The "Zaimka" (means borrowed farmstead) station was built in 1899 approximately five kilometres from the "Perm" station. Clean air, building space and proximity to the Kama River attracted townspeople here.

The first building in "Perm the Second" station was built in 1909. The station was located far outside the city, so reaching it required transport, first the yamschike and later the car. Hence the legend that the AP based on Chekhov plays "Three Sisters" put the lives of the provincial city of Perm.

Over time, the station could not handle increased traffic, and a new larger building was constructed.

Station Perm-II is the main railway access point into Perm Territory. 15,000 passengers passed through the station daily. It was a beautiful building of white brick, situated on open land and clearly visible from the city. In 1959, the first expansion and remodelling began; the station was extended to the west. It was decided to also finish two floors of the station. In 1988, another ambitious expansion plan was drawn up. The suburban cashier and the luggage compartment would be a new building height of 29 metres. The plans would allow passengers to go directly from the bus or tram platforms through an underground pedestrian walkway and escalators. However, construction costs of three million rubles (1988 value) prevented the plans from being implemented. Now station Perm-II issignificantly altered in appearance: the floor and walls atefaced with marble of a dark milky grey colour. The doors have been replaced, for passengers' comfort, and the lights have been rearranged, similarly to the subway. Already repaired overflights stairsteps to the second floor: they are also executed in marble.

However storey building and its total area has not yet been determined.
