No Subway , Light Rail , or Metrorail Stations , unless there part of a Multiple purpose stations like Hoboken Terminal , which has Metrorail in the basement , Light Rail on the side and Ferry's ontop of Commuter Rail. NY Penn doesn't count becuz its not really a station and if you've been to NYC you'll understand why.

I really like 30th Street Station in Philadelphia. I was awed the first time I walked up the steps into the main concourse.

Metrorail is hard to explain, there are some heavy rail and some light rail "Metrorails". Los Angeles and Miami both have heavy rail "Metrorails", Houston has a light rail "METRORail."

Hey since PATH is technically a railroad and not a subway I nominate 33rd Street
