Train station Mogilev
Belarus, Mogilev

In 1900, Nicholas II approved the Regulation of the United Presence and the Department of State Economy of the State Council, which provided for the construction of a railway line from Vitebsk to the Zhlobin station of the Libavo-Romny railway. Mogilev station was conceived as a passenger. Indeed, in those years in Mogilev there was not and was not foreseen the construction of enterprises. Therefore, a rather large station was planned in the construction of the road. His project included a corridor planning system that was fashionable at the time. It is solved in the form of a one-story building with an elongated plan form. The spacious structure of the building had a strictly symmetrical solution with two small extensions at the ends. The central place in the planning structure was occupied by an octagonal-shaped lobby, from which small corridors go along the elongated axis to the right and left, linking the waiting rooms with auxiliary services - mail, telegraph, the premises of the station head, technical workers, and police. Ticket offices and luggage went directly to the lobby. The ceremonial moment of discovery came for the citizens of Mogilev in 1902. To the sound of music, the first train departed from the platform of the beautiful Mogilev station. Regular passenger and freight traffic began along the entire Vitebsk – Zhlobin line. The capacity of the Orsha – Zhlobin line was 2 pairs of passenger and 7 pairs of freight trains per day. The station in Mogilev has become very popular among residents of the city and the province. Not for everyone, of course, but for people with a certain income. A ticket to St. Petersburg cost 20 rubles, and a cheap one costs about 11 rubles. Passengers were delivered to the station by cabs, a horse-drawn car was created - the first in Belarus, since 1911 the first two taxis appeared in Mogilev, owned by Samuel Sagal - the grandfather of the famous artist Marc Chagall. In the period from 1914 to 1915, the future famous poet Sergei Yesenin served as a military orderly at the station Mogilev. In August 1915, German troops invaded Belarus, and therefore the Headquarters of the High Command of the Russian Army was moved to Mogilev. At Mogilev station, a special dead end was constructed for the royal train. In 1931, railway lines were laid that connected Mogilev with Krichev and Osipovichi. Thus, Mogilev became a junction station connected with large railway junctions Orsha, Zhlobin, Osipovichi, Krichev, and through them - with the whole huge country. After World War II, the Mogilev station was seriously destroyed. However, already in 1945, the station building was overhauled. In 1956, a pedestrian bridge was built over the railroad tracks. Due to the significantly increased volumes of passenger traffic, a new ticket office building is being built, which was commissioned in 1966. In 1978, work began on the reconstruction of the Mogilev-I station and station. Reception and departure tracks were extended to 950 meters, 2 wide intermediate passenger platforms were built, the coast passenger platform was extended, two dead-end tracks with platforms were laid for commuter trains. In 1985, an administrative building was built for passenger station workers and postal workers (luggage compartment). In the building, in addition to the administration of the station, automatic left-luggage offices, luggage compartment, rest rooms for passengers were placed. From 2000 to 2004, the next reconstruction of the station complex was made, which gave the current, modern look to the Mogilev station. During the reconstruction, overhaul of the ticket offices, passenger building, and luggage compartment was carried out. The apron and platforms, outdoor lighting were reconstructed, the station square was put in order, the station square was improved. In 2009, the sculpture “Station Caretaker” appeared in Mogilev railway station, cast in bronze by the Minsk sculptor Vladimir Zhbanov. The sculpture in full human height is installed directly on the platform and fully meets the style of the early twentieth century. A uniform cap with a cockade flaunts on the railroad’s head, a long cloak covers his shoulders, and in his hands he holds a station lamp and an antique clock. Near the station wall there is a small bronze bell, which anyone can call. This is a collective image of an old railwayman, with the help of which the author wanted to convey such an attractive spirit of a bygone era, the emergence in 1902 of a railway station in Mogilev. The Mogilev station complex consists of three separate buildings - the ticket office building, the passenger building (waiting room) and the luggage compartment building.
