Train Stations Around the World

Want to see more great train photos? Check out the hashtag #fr8heaven.

Today is a big anniversary for railroad fans: It’s the 144th anniversary of the completion of the US transcontinental railroad. The railroad facilitated travel from the east to the west coast of the United States.

Train stations have been around for over 200 years—ever since the United Kingdom constructed the very first structures in the early 19th century. Many of these early 19th century stations reflect the grandiose architecture popular at the time, while those built more recently are more likely to have simple, abstract designs.

To honor the history of these buildings, we gathered together a list of some of the most beautiful stations from around the world. For more photos of each building’s stunning architecture, visit the location pages below:

Time for spooky Japanese Urban Legends! Σ(゚д゚lll)

“Teke Teke”

The legend goes like this. There was once a high school girl whose body got brutally cut in half when she accidentally fell down a railway and got ran over by a train. Now an onryō (vengeful ghost), she haunts train stations, railways and highschools carrying a scythe, cutting her victims in half across the torso, just like how her body looks like. She is known to be very fast, moving creepily using her arms, which also makes the “teke teke” noise, hence her name.
