I love the Limoges Benedictins Train Staion in Limoges, France. It's featured in a Chanel Commercial, it's gorgeous.

Love the blog.

NY's Penn Station should have been on this list. It's a tragedy of epic proportions that they destroyed it to make Madison Square Garden.

I used to work across the street from Union Station in downtown LA and that train station always took my breath away! Being that I grew up in the country, it encompasses what's beautiful about the city.

Glad to see that two of them are in my country, Portugal!
It's really hard to pick a fave really, but of the ones I have visited besides the Portuguese ones (King's Cross, Atocha, Gare du Nord, Grand Central) I am torn between Grand Central and Atocha.

I've already been in 4 of them (Lisbon, Oporto, Paris and Madrid) and although I'm from Portugal and like particulary the one from Lisbon from the outside ( which at close is even more beautiful) and the one from Oporto from the inside, I must say that I've got curious about the one from New Zealand!! Maybe some day ;)
