Hidden Royal Waiting Hall

The Swedish royal family has never had to pass through the masses of people waiting at the Stockholm central station. Instead, they have a private entrance to a dedicated regal waiting room with an exit right on to the platform of track 10. 

Although rarely used these days, the hidden waiting room is still there, reserved for royal use only. It was moved to its current location in the south end of the main hall around the turn of the 20th century.
