Now for some Australasian ones. Melbourne has been pretty well covered, so some more:

Dunedin, NZ (unfortunately doesn't see terribly much traffic these days):



Central (suburban)/Sydney Terminal (intercity):




Perth (note potplants between the tracks):




Adelaide (the only non-electrified main station in Australia but with a casino conveniently located upstairs)




Brisbane - Roma St (intercity trains):




Brisbane - Central (suburban trains):

All railroad stations in the southwestern United States should look like the Santa Fe depot in San Bernardino:

I like the façade of Brussel Centraal, and the hall is nice, too. But the platforms and mezzanine are up for a lot of work...

I can't decide which is my favourite main station in Germany (by architecture)!

It must be one of these:

Frankfurt







Berlin





Hamburg







Leipzig





Dresden

Antwerp

yes its a fantastic station, plus it has good food facilities and a nice bar to have a drink and admire the view. Also when the building is finished and the outside re surfaces it has several tram routes for onward journeys.
Same for Amsterdam Central, which also has all its tram routes conveniently commencing there. No point having a Central Station without further onward transport links. Havnt a good Photo but Sao Bento in Porto is very nice, with huge mosaics and tiles on the walls, curently being restored. Spain has more than a few beauiful stations too. More like Cathedrals than mere stations.

Groningen is another favourite of mine, although I think it's still a bit of a construction site at the moment because of the underground bicycle parking garage.

Yes, that's from 2004
Now:

It is not really a culture shock, bearing in mind that the Groningen museum is a mix of styles, and built in the canal separating the station area from the old city.
