Stirling railway station is a Transperth train and bus interchange located 9 kilometres (5.6 mi) northwest of Perth railway station in Western Australia, on the Joondalup Line.
Constructed from 1990 to 1992, it was built as part of the Northern Suburbs Transit System and the Joondalup Line.
The station's location presented some interesting design challenges - while the station resides within the Mitchell Freeway road reserve, the road reserve for the future Stephenson Highway runs in an area directly over the station at the southern end of its platforms. During the design of the station and its approach roads, the engineering firm Ove Arup & Partners was tasked with investigating and designing road layouts to accommodate for both future and current needs.
Due to the nature of the future Stephenson Highway, a number of road layout options were considered including:
All of the above designs involved significantly complex road layouts which amongst others included partial cloverleaf interchanges, and the construction of new bridges connecting the future highway to Cedric Street.
Stirling is on the Joondalup Line of the Transperth Trains network, a hybrid metro-commuter rail system

MacArthur is a rapid transit station on three lines of the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system in Oakland, California. It is the largest station in the BART system, being the only one with four platform tracks in regular use.
MacArthur station is in north Oakland, in the median of Route 24 just north of its interchange with Interstate 580 and perpendicular to 40th Street. The surrounding area is mostly low-density residential, making MacArthur station a commuting hub.
Because of MacArthur's importance as an interchange and its location in the center of the East Bay, BART has conducted a number of feasibility studies about the prospects of creating transit-oriented development around the station. These studies have resulted in a plan for the "MacArthur Transit Village," a mixed-use development on the eastern side of Route 24 bounded by 40th Street, Telegraph Avenue, and West MacArthur Boulevard. The current plan calls for 624 residential units as well as 42,500 square feet of retail space. The groundbreaking for the project was held in May 2011 with the start of construction for a new 450-space parking garage for BART, signalling the beginning of construction for the long waited

Dorasan Station is a railroad station situated on the Gyeongui Line, which once connected North and South Korea and has now been restored. For several years the northernmost stop on the line was Dorasan Station, which is served by Tonggeun commuter trains.
On December 11, 2007, freight trains began traveling north past Dorasan Station into North Korea, taking materials to the Kaesong Industrial Region, and returning with finished goods. It was scheduled to make one 16-kilometer (9.9 mi) trip every weekday.
However, on December 1, 2008, the North Korean government closed the border crossing, after accusing South Korea of a confrontational policy. This coincided with the South Korean legislative election, 2008, and a change to a more conservative government.
Plans to begin regular passenger service across the Imjin River to North Korea have yet to be finalized. However, a tourist visit in January 2010 showed clearly that the station was completely shut to all train travel, and that the station was only open for tourists.
Gwanghwamun Station is a station on the Seoul Subway Line 5 in South Korea. It is not the closest subway station to the actual gate of Gwanghwamun, for which it is named. It is located next to the U.S. Embassy in Seoul.

Namtaeryeong Station is a station on the Seoul Subway Line 4. It is the southernmost station on Line 4 that is operated by Seoul Metro.
The name of this station literally means "great southern pass," referring to a passageway linking Seoul and Gwacheon, between Mt. Gwanak and Mt. Umyeon.
Most of the provincial railways in South Korea were built with Japanese expertise when Korea was under Japanese rule. The left-hand track is still used for trains. But the Seoul Metro, which was constructed much later in the 1970s, used the right-hand track for its subway lines, including Line 4. Therefore, between Namtaeryeong and Seonbawi Stations, where the two lines connect, the underground tracks must cross over from left-to-right and right-to-left.

This is the last stop before entering the Transbay Tube into San Francisco, and all trains except those of the Richmond - Fremont line pass through this station. In late 2005 a parking program was implemented in which parking commuters at this station would have to pay $5 per day. This was implemented to raise revenues for BART, to bring parking costs at the station in line with parking at other local garages, and to ensure that parking at the stations was going to be used for BART patrons only, parking spaces would have had to be 'validated' inside the BART paid area.
The station was originally named Oakland West until 1982.
