While I really like the architecture of Chinese stations, they seem really hard the expand later on. Sure, they are made with a huge overcapacity (for instance the Dutch Utrecht Central Station handles 88 million passengers per year, but is way smaller in size), but the cities they're in are also rapidly expanding.

Guangzhou has 4 railway stations to handle different railway lines. Beijing, Shanghai and the other Chinese major cities, all have more than 2 railway hubs.

I know. But those cities have populations that are competing with average sized countries.

Don't get me wrong, there has been a lot of foresight in planning this infrastructure. It's just that it's hard to keep up with the growth rates there. So it will be probably fine for another 20 years, but after that it might be a big problem to enlarge it once again.

I think there will be bigger problems if the number of people needing to use trains grew to the capacites of the stations. Public transportation, roads, train tracks would be way over congested before train station size became an issue.

That's correct. Getting on the subway in Beijing at one of the train stations can take 30mins during rush hours. Might make sense to build more stations instead of enlarging the station and the supporting infrastructure to no end.
