One of my favourites is Kuranda, in the hills behind Cairns in North Queensland, Australia. The lovely old building is framed by the most colourful and extensive array of plants, trees and shrubs that I have ever seen:

I like modern architecture more so new stains on Chinese high speed network look great to me. My favorite will be Guangzhou South. Its aerial look is amazing.





All the tracks are elevated so it feels like floating

You're right about the dirtyness and the mess. But GdN can definitly not be compared to St Pancras. Paris Gare du Nord is the world's third busiest station and Eurostar is just one service among many others while St Pancras is almost dedicated to Eurostar (I know there are also some domestic services from St Pancras but nothing comparable).
Things should improve though in the next decade with a huge extension on the western side, with some railway office buildings being converted into a new Eurostar terminal that could challenge St Pancras.

I didn't find Southern Cross very appealing. Actually it only looks good from top IMO. Flinders street is looks much nicer IMO.

I like the interiors of Franca station Barçelona





Zürich Main Staion
Well mostly the old hall.

Maybe not the most beautiful, but arguably the most important station in the world. Manchester Liverpool Road, the worlds oldest railway station!
