New £3.4m passenger facilities have been unveiled at Liverpool Lime Street railway station.
The facilities include both first and standard class passenger lounges, an information office and three retail outlets.
Network Rail's route director Jo Kaye said the new facilities had to fit in with the building's listed status.
She said that "environmentally-friendly timber beams" had been used in the building of what was a modern facility.
She added: "It provides much needed seating and other services that were previously missing from the south side of the station, and I hope that passengers appreciate and continue to benefit from them for many years to come."
Network Rail took over the day-to-day management of Lime Street station in November 2003.
More work is planned, including resurfacing platforms and replacing the station's boilers with a more energy-efficient system.
The exposed archways to the front of the station will also be repaired.
The first station at Lime Street was opened in August 1836.
This was replaced in 1849 by a new station on Lord Nelson Street.
