Nagoya Station (32 platforms) isn't listed in the Largest stations list while Nagoya's City total seems to include this station.

So, we have to modify the list as

Largest Stations:
32: Nagoya
City Totals for Main Terminii:
44: Nagoya (Japan) (Nagoya:32 + Kanayama:12)

@TORKE and the rest:

Nowadays, Madrid Puerta de Atocha has got 15 tracks and Madrid Chamartin has got 22 tracks. So Madrid = 15+22 = 37 tracks.

Update the list, please!

Venice Santa Lucia station has got about 20 tracks...


And the mainland station Venezia Mestre is at about 10 (I think, but I'm not sure).

Genoa's got 2 main stations:
Genova Brignole


(maybe 10 tracks?)


and Genova Piazza Principe


20 tracks


Padova is a medium sized transit station, it should have at least 10 tracks

^ great photos but do you mean "tracks" or "platforms" - there is a great difference.

I'm pretty sure about the number of tracks, not about the number of platforms, 'cause in some cases you can find "one track>one platform" in others "two tracks>one platform" and sometimes there are both the cases in the same station.

Absolutely I don't know the exact number of platforms!

Surely 19 platforms are somewhat different from 10 tracks only


I still can't find good pics of italian stations... and this is a shame because most of the major ones are truly beautiful buildings
