Series Hiirola - homage to Knut Nylander is based on the work by the architect of the Finnish railway company during the end of the 19th century. The architect is the designer of the so-called Oulu rautatieasema building and the design is used for over 40 railway stations along different tracks around Finland.
Most of the railway station can be found along the Pohjanmaan rata (13), Savon rata (9), and Karjalan rata (7). The basic formula has changed during the years by enlarging the building, changing the use of some parts in or outside the building and finally most of the stations are not longer in use as railway station.
The buildings are often still in good condition and since several years private persons and organizations have bought the properties. New activities have started.

1889 the design by Knut Nylander for over 40 railway station in Finland.

At the end of 2012 I moved to the railway station in Hiirola and started to renovate the building into a working and living place. The construction is solid and the rooms are spacious and have a good proportion. For me a good base to work and to live.
