Saw a travel feature in a British newspaper proclaiming 'The 20 best railway station in the world' and it made me think, there are a few I'd consider better than some of their picks.
So, here's a question - what's your personal choice for any reason whatsoever -
Which 2 US rail stations are the best?
Which 2 rest of the world rail stations are the best?
Any photos with replies would be good too.
To start this off from stations visited so far -
US #1 - Washington is my top US pick as it is so elegant, so connected into other transport systems and so central. Walking out through the front doors you can walk to so many diverse locations, it really feels as though it's at the heart of Washington.
US #2 - Lompoc - Surf Station. First reason is it's outstanding name. With a name like Lompoc it should be in Vietnam not California, and Surf Station? could any other state use such a name? Second reason it's location, enough said.
World choice #1 - Milano Centrale, my first 'magnificent' railway station as a 16 year let loose on Europe for the first time without adults in tow. In the company of a school friend both out to discover the world
World choice #2 - Berlin Hauptbahnhof, you could make a film set in the future inside it, amazing
