A great choice, but I'm really surprised you rated the Gare de Lyon in Paris over the Gare de l'Est, which is possibly the most beautiful station in France. And including Lille is stare in the extreme. I would have put Washington DC ahead od Grand Union New York, but they are both beautiful stations.
