Glasgow Central will be having one platform added to cope with the new line to the airport. So it will be 17 platforms in a couple of years.

I send the email of the manager, too.
I report that I take harassment from Justme.
I post along a title.
Let's wait for fair judgment.

For example, Otemachi Station is a subway station.
But the number of the passengers of 1st is 340,000 people. And There are ten platforms.
And virtually, there is a function as the terminal station.

I feel jealousy to the railway network of Tokyo from Justme.

Chatelet les Halles in Paris has 800,000 passengers per day.
A lot of people arrive from oulter suburbs with the RER. It has 19 platforms and virtually, there is a function as the terminal station.

But we didn't include this station and we will not include this station.

Stockholm seems to be missing from all lists.

The Stockholm central station has 10 through tracks (4 of which are for commuter trains), plus 8 tracks that end at the station and 6 metro tracks that are adjacent.

total: 24 tracks for that station.

For the city as a whole there are 6 more tracks at Stockholm Östra for commuter trains (that do not continue to the central station), maybe bringing the total for the city to 30.

Total passengers who get on any train on a standard weekday is 161000 at the adjacent metro and 220000 in the actual central station, but there may be some overlap and a few people are using the connected bus station, not trains. Maybe total 300000 people is a reasonable and comparable number.

some London stations that aren't (as far as I'm aware) on the list of stations with more than 10 platforms

Baker Street has 10 - all London Underground (4 Metropolitan line, 2 Circle/Hammersmith & City lines, 2 Jubilee line, 2 Bakerloo line)

Stratford has 15 (2 Central line, 2 Overground North London Line, 3 Jubilee line, 7 National Rail, 1 Docklands Light Railway). Another Docklands Light Railway platform will open soon, new NLL platforms are not far off being started (old ones becoming DLR ones in 2010) and another platform (giving two for one, the westbound, track) will be built for the Central line.

Not London, but Reading station current has 12, and is planned to have 15.

Union Station (Toronto) is sort of a termiuns in some ways for many of the Regional (Communter) Railway lines and Amtrak that uses it but for some intercity VIA Rail it acts as a Major Railway Station in Toronto

as for Grand Central Terminal in NYC is a Terminus for the currently using Metro-North Railroad which is a Regional (Communter) Railway Service and in a few years from now it will service Long Island Railroad when the East Side Access is completed

Yes, but it's a through station - for a lot of trains it's not the last stop on the line.
