or coloquially

dworzec gdański = Gdansk hall

Stacja (station) is female gender noun, hence adjective Gdańska has female suffix -a.
Dworzec (hall) is male gender noun, hence adjective gdański has male suffix -i.

Just one thought regarding this view of Gdańsk Wrzeszcz station:

Agreed.

As for now they can put Македонски Железници on side and send trains to Macedonia.

And only 1/3 of the network in Macedonia is electrified, so only on such a part of the network they could make use of EN57...

Przewozy Regionalne (vel Polregio) is currently scrapping a number of their EN57. If the Macedonian Railways wanted to take them, even for free, they would probably be able to do it.
