Default Night Photography Problem

The Ottawa station is a very well lit station. It's actually very very bright, as can be seen in this photo by Mike Britt:

However, I have already ventured twice to the station already, froze my butt off, and all the shots turned out like crap.

I'm surprised this shot got even accepted:

But, as you can see, the difference is clear.

Now, I will be taking a train at departing from Ottawa at 5 in the morning next week. It's going to be dark, and I want to take some pictures. However, I don't want them to turn out like crap again. Could someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong, and what I can do to make the photo look brighter. (I have already tried all the different limited flash settings my camera has, and I also tried with no flash).

Thanks in advance,
