Southern Cross Station in Melbourne is the best station in Australia. Looks fantastic.







I also rate the TGV station at Lyon Saint Exupery Airport.

Lyon Saint Exupery Airport station is not a Main.

Lyon has two main stations.
-Lyon Part Dieu
-Lyon Perrache

Great thread. those european stations ... I wish!

Melbourne's Southern Cross is pretty good (though here half-finished) ...



So is Sydney Central ...



but there aren't too many stations in the world that take a decent photo pretty much from the full 360 degrees. Flinders Street Melbourne is one of them.

From the west:



from the north:



north-east :



from the east:






from the south:



even from the subway:



though a subway means something different here to what it means in NY ... and where are the trains?

Some of my favorite railway stations

Jelgava (picture is old, but the station hasn't changed


Ventspils 1


Aloja (Abandoned)


Valka (Abandoned)


Me×ciems


Cekule (try to find the station building)


Cēsis


But my most favorite is:
Riga Central Station









And still this is no match for the old Riga station (demolished in the 1960ties or 70ties)

The trains between Barcelona and Madrid runs in HSL from Madrid to Roda de BarÓ, in this station the train change the gauge and runs in the standard line to Sant Vicenš de Calders, and in then to Barcelona via Vilanova i la Geltr˙ (but, when this line falls the trains runs to Barcelona via Vilafranca del PenedŔs). In Barcelona Sants, now, only have 8 iberian gauge tracks. All trains (except Altaria "Triana") continue to Barcelona-Estaciˇ de Franša via Passeig de GrÓcia (the really 2nd more important station of Barcelona, all Catalunya ExprÚs trains and suburban trains stop in) because Sants station now are in works for rebulding station and for the arrive of HSL line, and the Estaciˇ de Franša station have little traffic is ideal for the finish of this trains.

Two points:
1) Estaciˇ de Franša has during long time (since medium 90's) the terminal of Catalunya ExprÚs trains network to the south of Catalonia (Tarragona, Valls, Lleida, M˛ra la Nova, Zaragoza, Reus, Tortosa, ValŔncia). When the Sants station rebulding works started some Arco trains (Barcelona-ValŔncia and Barcelona-Murcia) started in Estaciˇ de Franša, at the same time the Talgo trains Barcelona-Montpellier "Catalan Talgo, Barcelona-Paris "Joan Mirˇ" and Barcelona-Milan/ZŘrich "Pau Casals" started in Estaciˇ de Franša for the same reason. More time ago, when we restablished the direct link between Barcelona and the Airport, we choose to terminate the trains at Estaciˇ de Franša because Sant Andreu Comtal station are more busiest than Estaciˇ de Franša and haven't got any trains to terminate the trains at Montcada-Bifurcaciˇ or Granollers-Centre. Later, when the trains of Barcelona-Madrid line where are changed (from VII Talgos+252 electric locomotive to 120 emu trains with automatic gauge change system) there are changed their finish station to Barcelona-Estaciˇ de Franša and have their base in this.

2) Talgo "Triana" not finish at Estaciˇ de Franša because the Talgo manteniment base are located at the north of Sant Andreu Comtal station, and when the train arrives to Barcelona goes later to this station. This is the same operation for all Talgo trains (except Cartagena-Montpellier "Mare Nostrum").

Antwerp and Milan's railway stations are awesome.

Here's Marseille's Gare Saint Charles (currently being modernised and extended), famous for its monumental staircase.

The extension of the railway station (supposed to open in June)

^ I agree. It's been remodelled quite well in the last few years. The only let down is the platz in front of the Dom as you leave the main entrance.
