A few African favorites:

Edit: You might wonder, are there actually services to the stations listed? And yes, there's a weekly service to Beira and a twice-weekly to Bobo-Dioulasso and Kigoma.


Neo-Sudanese architecture of the Bobo-Dioulasso station, Burkina Faso.


The wonderful 1960s brutalism of Beira station, Mozambique.




And finally, colonial charm in Kigoma, Tanzania. Michael Palin noted that without it's mosquitos it could have been an "upcountry health spa" when visiting on his pole-to-pole journey way back in 1991.
