He meant to say that he didn't realize there is a space between the PSD and the train.

I like this design very much too, it's a very simple solution to the problem of limited waiting hall space, it allows passengers onto the platform earlier yet still prevents too many people from getting too close to the train.

Did the design of either station allow for future expansion once the need has been demonstrated by the crowds?

I don't think the structure can be easily changed but every station has a large square in front so I guess maybe that space is reserved for future expansion.

Furthermore more than one stations are being built for each city to cope with the growing passengers. i.e. Xiamen has one reserved station (Gaoqi Station) besides the existing two and Nanchang is building the 2nd station, Nanchang West.

I think it is more practical to have many sub stations than just one big station. Bottleneck traffic can choke with one big station whereas multiple stations, traffic can be divided.

I love the old architecture of the Qingdao Railway Station. I'm not sure if this is rare in China but I don't see many Terminus stations, this one is obvious due to geography.
