@Irish Blood English Heart, Is the Manchester Metrolink proper platforms for a metro, or Tram Platforms? So far no trams or Light Rail has been included (unless the Light Rail is of metro standard)

SE9, when you update the list, it should be nice to use the latest version (see previous page).

@SE9, Earlier in the thread we discounted stations like Clapton Junction as they were more associated with suburban interchange or through stations rather than central terminus'.

i.e. a central terminus can also be a through station, but large suburban stations havn't been included for any of the cities (as far as I know) so far.

^ Thats cool.. I'll remove Clapham Junction.

Stratford (15) and Wimbledon (10) are large-ish terminus' too, although not central. Should I remove them aswell?

Sorry about the confusion. I just spotted a "suburban" station and assumed that they were being counted.

Can anyone tell me where "Stratford" Station London is ? It's off my radar.

Thanks for keeping the threads together, JustMe, and thanks to eveyone who's kept the platform totals updated.

Re Chicago ... (in the other thread)

from what are essentially two seperate terminals, the even-numbered tracks/platforms go northwards, and the odd-numbered tracks go southwards? Unusual (but not heretical).

Re Flinders St. Melbourne:

This station originally comprised two (Flinders st. & Prince's Bridge). After renumerating the platforms, it had 1-16 (14 was "One East"), but two ere lost (in fact the entirety of Prince's Bridge Station) during the construction of Federation Square, and platform 11 is not currently operative, although 10 & 11 east (12 & 13) are still in use. My total stands: Flinders St: 13 (operative) platforms.

Re. Southern Cross Melbourne:

The total I have suggested again appears to stand. Platforms 1-14 operate, 8 south is not just an extension of 8, & 15 &16, although planned, are still just a building site. Platforms 2 -8 have one or more cross-overs along their length, which could arguably be construed as reason for them being counted as multiple platforms (2 north, 2 south, etc.) but I won't go into this .... for obvious reasons!

Stratford station is a major suburban station to London's East, as you can see from the map below; follow the arrow from the top/right

Keep in mind that this map doesn't show the new highspeed Eurostar line which is nearly completed passing through Stratford (and stopping there) before ending in the city. The entire line is underground through London.

Also, despite being a suburban station, it is a terminus for various lines from the Underground, the DLR and a commuter line.



At the moment, there are trains every 20-30seconds, by the time the Olympics reach London, this will have increased to every 13seconds.

Stratford is directly connected to two of London's five international airports, Stansted and London City. When the new Eurostar platforms are completed it will also have direct links to Paris and Brussels.



Some photos before the full enlargement:




More details of Stratford International can be found here:
http://www.lcrhq.co.uk/





I don't have pictures of what the new International part of the station will look like unfortunately.

Thanks.

So Stratford International is ...

  • An eastern suburbs stop-off for International traffic?
  • London's Jamaica?
  • London's Homebush?

Or all of the above?


(and for pure image, nothing will ever go past St. Pancras in London, except Flinders St. in Melbourne and Victoria Station in Mumbai).

Ok here is some info from my hometown of Boston.

South Station - 13 platforms

North Station - 12 platforms (10 active, 2 inactive)

In 1893....


Today its completely nondescript. It's built under the Fleet Center (TD Banknorth Garden), which is the basketball and hockey complex.

So does anyone know how many platform/tracks the Ogilvy, LaSalle, and Randolph stations have in Chicago? They are all the end of the line for all their trains. I actually work in the office building where the Ogilvy station is located. It's a very interesting and very busy building, but much more an office building with a huge food court in the bottom of it than a full fledged train station. I take the El to work though, so I don't know how many platforms this station has - although I'm thinking 10-13 from my casual glances when I happen to walk by the tracks to get lunch. Any word on these other stations? Combined with Union that could easily push Chicago's citywide total up to around 55 or possibly higher.

The station has a totally of 25 platforms (plus 2 more ones of subway sistem: Atocha Renfe) in 2 different levels, 10 of them in the lower one for local trains ("Atocha Cercanías") and the other 15 in the upper one for high speed and long haul trains ("Puerta de Atocha"). Some pictures of the station from the net:
