I think the winner would be Basel.
Don't forget to add the BLT line to Rodersdorf. To the untrained eye it might look like a tramline but officially it is a railway.
That's another 58 train pairs...

I will not include that BLT line to Rodersdorf because it is not included in the Cook. But what should I do with the Saarbahn Saarbrücken-Sarreguemines. Is it a railway or a tramway? Or a hybrid. I think I will include it, but I am not sure.

O, and by the way: Paris has a lot more international connections than I expected. Incredible.

The Saarbahn would be probably classified as light rail in the US, in Germany it is sort of a Stadtbahn but Wikipedia says its called a "Regionalstadtbahn".

It's a tram-train, a hybrid.

However I would differentiate between regional trains with only the last stop in another country (a border station, like Ventimiglia, Chiasso, Brennero, Roosendal, Irun-Hendaye, Cerbere-Port Bou, etc) and "true" international trains (eithe rregional or long distance). The Saarbahn falls into the first category.

This train only goes from Lisbon to Irun/Hendaye, with connection by TGV to Paris. Obviosuly it's a night train.

It counts only until Hendaye and from Irun.

The tradition, today stupid, of asimmetric services is still in place.

Trains from Spain terminate in France, but start back from Spain, and viceversa.

That's what I meant actually. (i.e. the Lisboa-Paris train simply doesn't exist, yet)

No, it's a new connection Moscow-Budapest-Maribor-Ljubljana-Koper (on the Slovenian coast). It's the existing summer train Koper-Budapest extended to Moscow.

What summer train to Istanbul? There has long been talk of a summer train Budapest-Istanbul, but Ljubljana-Istanbul is absolute news to me; at the moment not even Belgrade-Istanbul is running. Please elaborate.

It's a car train (motorail) Villach-Edirne (or maybe Istanbul now).

Optima Express pass through Ljubljana, but the only places one can board or leave the train are Villach and Edirne. My understanding was that we count here trains not passing through, but ones that can actually be boarded.
And concerning Paris: I believe Elipsos night trains will be withdrawn, leaving PAris without a direct train to Madrid, unfortunately.
