Michigan Central Station (aka Michigan Central Depot or MCS) was built in 1913, after the previous Michigan Central Station burned. The station was built for the Michigan Central Railroad and has been Detroit and Michigan’s passenger rail depot from its opening in 1913 until the cessation of Amtrak service on January 6, 1988. At the time of its construction, it was the tallest rail station in the world.

The Bauru station is very big and it’s composed by three different stations, built at the beginning of the 20th century in order to serve three different railroads/company services (Noroeste, Sorocabana, Paulista). In 1939, with the completion of the huge new Noroeste station, which also encompassed the company’s offices, all departures and arrivals of the three railroads were centralized at this new station, and the buildings of Sorocabana and the old Noroeste have been divested.
Canfranc International station is located in Aragon, close to the Franco-Spanish border in the province of Huesca. It is the second largest station in Europe by the size of its facilities. Built with the intention of a great future, nowadays is dedicated to local traffic on the Spanish side and it is probably the biggest railway waste of the world.
