This is the Central Station of the 'Ferrocarril de La Sabana' in Bogota, Colombia. I know its at the other side of the World but its interesting to compare its architecture, as it keeps its neoclassical style and the strict laws followed by the English Engineer William Lidstore during its construction in 1924.

Central Station - 1930


Central Station - Actual


PD: Nowadays, the train operates only for tourism purposes and recently for load haul.

ESTACIÓ DE FRANÇA (Barcelona)

"A railway station was first built here in the 19th century as the main terminus for trains arriving from France (as its name still suggests), but also for services to North East Catalonia and the Costa Brava.

Re-built and re-opened for the 1929 International Exhibition, the two monumental buildings that make up the station were designed by the architect Pedro Muguruza and inaugurated by King Alfonso XIII. They surround the railway tracks in the shape of a 'U'. In total, the station's structure is 29m tall and 195m long.
It is generally seen as the city's most beautiful station. It is worth seeing in its own right for the restrained mix of classical and more modern styles - complete with decoration in marble, bronze and crystal, and modernista and art déco motifs. Over the last three decades it has been eclipsed as Barcelona’s main station by the subterranean sprawl of Sants. Indeed, the other stations of Barcelona are all at least partly underground, França being the only exception."

Jakarta Kota Station (formerly: BEOS station) (original: 1870, current form: 1926)

The station was built around 1870. It was renovated in 1926 and re-opened on August 19, 1926. It was officially inaugurated on October 8, 1929, by the Dutch Governor-General, A.C.D. de Graeff.

The design of the station was by the Dutch architect Frans Johan Louwrens Ghijsels (born September 8, 1882) and is a combination of Western Art Deco and local architecture styles.

Jakarta Kota Station is a two-storey station surrounded by streets on three sides with one main entrance gate and two side entrance gates. The main entrance gate is recognized by its barrel-vault roof with openings horizontally composed with the top dominated by vertical units (lunettes).

The inside wall of the hall is finished with brown ceramic with rough texture and the outside wall at the bottom of the whole building was covered with green-yellowish plaster. The station floor uses yellow teak and grey wood, and for the platform floor yellow waffle teakwood is used. The platforms are sheltered by canopies supported by steel columns.

The building today:

Tanjung Priok Station, Jakarta, Indonesia

Tanjung Priok Station can not be separated with Tanjung Priok Port as it was the main port of Dutch Indies and the gate of Batavia or even Dutch East Indies.

The port that was built in 1877 under Governor-General Johan Wilhelm van Lansberge who control the Dutch East Indies in 1875-1881 is showing their importance and getting the title of one of the busiest port in Asia after the Suez Canal has been open.

Tanjung Priok Station linked the port with the city of Batavia in the south. During that time, Tajung Priok Port area was a swamp that was dangerous for travel. The only safe mode of transport was train. That was the reason of building train tracks to Tanjung Priok.

The station was built in 1914 under Governor-General Alexander Willem Frederik Idenburg who ruled Dutch Indies from 1909 to 1916. To finish the station, the construction needed to employed worker as much as 1,700 workers and 130 of it was European.

The station ceased to operate passenger trains between 2000 to 2009,and during those times,the station was used for shunting freight trains.

Taormina, Sicily - Italy


Taormina's rail station is by the sea, far below the town. It also serves the coastal settlement of Giardini Naxos, and the station is therefore named Taormina - Giardini. The station is on the railway line that runs between Messina and Siracusa, and is also served by trains from Rome.The Sicilian Gothic train station for Taormina/Giardini-Naxos is 2 mile below the town.
