I agree that Barcelona Sants looks awful. If that is how it looks after renovation then the job was not well done. When I was last there a few years ago I thought it looked pretty bad and in fact much the same as in those photos. The building should be completely demolished and replaced with something far better. Is that the original building on the site, or was there originally a historical station there?

It's nothing special, I agree, but awful? It's not a 19th century palace or a grand temple for the Progress, but the pictures I see don't give me the creeps or anything. I can imagine it's a very pleasant place to stay.

Oriente Station in Lisbon is pretty amazing ... as are some of the others above from the Iberian Peninsula ... Barcelona, Bilbao.

At the moment, all we hear here is that you guys are going broke. If you are broke, you have riches to show for it!

A word of caution: don't let them sell off your national treasures, including your railway stations: ... it happens far too often. You'll never get them back.

Lisbon Oriente is pretty amazing in terms of architecture, but it really isn't that comfortable imo (especially the windy platforms). The best is imo Zurich HB - by far.

slightly off topic, but general "media" opinion here is that the Euro is stuffed, etc ... general media opinion might be totally revised next week, or even as a result of a Mediterranean raid.

The last two big wars started on your turf, but from my perspective, even if there is a hole in some of your pockets, at least you know what's worth constructing, and what's worth preserving. And knew how to build it in the first place.

Don't trust your media. If I believed local media here, I would believe Australia was a country with a serious racial problem.

The Euro is going through a tough time sure, but when it started it was below the US dollar. It then rose above it and it is still stronger than the US dollar, and Australian for that matter. If it was in serious trouble it would be lower than it is now.

The media does love to ramp up bad news and exaggerate it.

Is that a train station or a metro station?

This station already looks quite dated.

I don't mind, it's still very nice. As long as they maintain it properly, in a couple of decades this could become a monument. Don't forget that many Belle Epoque houses and stations were torn down because they were considered old-fashioned. Now, where smashing our heads when thinking of that stupidity...

Great work on a refurbishment to make it looks still like a brand new station in a modern style.

I do wish if some central stations in UK may able to fully (not just partly like St Pancreas) refurbish in such a way like this

You realised that it IS brand new, don't you?

You had the Lehrter Bahnhof on the same spot, of course, but not as big, not with so many levels, and certainly without so many trains. But you could say that Berlin Hbf is an upgrade of the old Lehrter Bhf.

Not really. There were actually two stations before the Hbf. The Lehrter Bhf. was a huge terminus destroyed in WWII. Afterwards, the Lehrter Stadtbahnhof was used as a S-Bahn station on the Stadtbahn.
Before the new Hauptbahnhof was buildt, the Lehrter Stadtbahnhof was demolished. So it is a brand new station. If you want to refurbish somethink (that's what you've talked about), you need to have an old structure before. Demolishing it makes a refurbishment imposible, doesn't it? So you can't compare the Hauptbahnhof to historic stations like St. Pancras.
