Maybe Hagen Hbf should be added as well, it has something like 10-14 tracks, depending on how you count.

For Amsterdam you can count Amsterdam Sloterdijk in as a Main Terminal for 12 platforms (10 rail + 2 subway).

I think we should add split platforms too. Amsterdam Centraal has only 11 rail platforms, but it handles like it has 21 rail platforms. Both in capacity and in number of passengers it fits more in that category (even in the 21/23 platform category it scores high).

Beijing South (newest - opened in 2008): 22
Beijing West: 18
Beijing Central: 14
Beijing North: 11
Beijing East(learned about it by accident -before considered Central to be East one): 3

Beijing South=24

You did not count other stations in Beijing down town.

Within the fourth ring road:
* Qinghuayuan: 2 platforms
* Fengtai: 5 platforms

So Beijing downtown (within 4th ring road) total: 77

Correction and add-on to the latest list

Brussels stations :

- Brussels Midi 22 + 6 if you count other forms of public transport
- Brussels North 12 + 4 if you...
- Schaerbeek 15
- Bruxelles Central 6 + 2 if you ...
- Bruxelles Luxembourg 6

Grand total is therefore 71, 61 for pure train tracks, or 49 if only stations of
more than 10 tracks count.

You may also want to add Antwerp, with 14 tracks, on 3 levels :

Level +1 6 terminal tracks (leading South)
Level 0 4 terminal tracks (leading South)
Level -1 4 passthrough tracks, continuing North to the Netherlands
via a tunnel under the city.

Plus 2 tracks of subway if you want to add them.

I don't think we should add light rail to them, other wise it will be an even bigger mess. We can discuss subway station. I saw that in the list subway platform were counted in examples from several other stations. In case of Antwerp I wouldn't say that the 'premetro' is a full subway line though.

In portugal we have:



Main stations in Porto:

Porto Campanha Station
- 15 rail platforms (6 terminal + 9 passing tracks)
- 3 tracks w/o platform
+ 2 metro(light rail) platfoms (since they are used to some 30km long metro/comuter trains they should be counted)
~ as it is the long distance terminus of Porto city in the near future some more tracks will be added to serve the TGV trains to Lisboa and Vigo (expected some 4/6 underground platforms)
~ aditionally some more metro platforms are expected at a lower level
= 15/17 platforms

Porto SãoBento station (inner city terminus)
- 8 platforms (all terminal)
- 2 metro(light rail) platforms
= 8/10 platforms

The other terminus in porto became ireelevant in this counting in the last decade:
Matosinhos/Leixões = became a mere siding in the Leixões harbour complex
Boavista = old narrow gauge ... the site is completely empty (only the skelet of th emain building remains) ... will be redeveloped in thbe future
Trindade station = old narrow gauge terminis ... it became a passtru metro station (3 tracks nowadays , the previous had half a dozen)

Porto = 23 (27 with metro) platforms in "main" stations.

........................................................................

Aveiro =
- 5 platforms (broad gauge)
- 2 platforms (narrow gauge)
~ also will have AV tracks/platforms (number and future layout still unknown)
= 7 platforms

..........................................................................

Braga main station = 6 terminal tracks/platforms ... future AV station with adittional pass-tru tracks (4 to 6 more tracks?)

...............................................................

CoimbraB station = 9 platforms (7 pass + 2 term.)

Coimbra station (central) = 3 platforms

Coimbra Parque station = 1 track (comuters just reverse there)

= 13 platforms in termini stations

..................................................................

Entroncamento
- 7+1 platforms (passing tracks)
- 4 platforms (termini)
= 12 platforms

...................................................................

Main stations in Lisboa:

Gare do Oriente station (lisboa long distance main interchange)
- 8 platforms (3 more will be added in the near futur to serve the AV to Porto and Madrid)
- 2 metro platforms underground

Santa Apolonia station (northern line terminus + international traffic)
- 8 platforms (6 open to passenger service)
- 2 metro underground platforms

Rossio station (terminus Sintra Line+Oeste line)
- 5 tracks (had more before rebuild... some 10)
- 2 metro tracks (2 aditional metro stations nearby)

Cais do Sodré (terminus Esturil Line , ferry-boat terminus)
- 6 platforms (had more until recently rebuild)
- 3 metro platforms
+ 4 light rail platforms
+ 2 ferry-boat pontoons

Entrecampos station (the true CENTRAL station in lisboa)
- 6 platforms
- 2 metro platforms

Aditionally there are other stations that either serve long distance trains (Sete Rios with 4 tracks) or are terminus for interurban services (areeiro with 4 tracks , Alcantara with 3 platforms) or comuter interchanges (Campolide with 5 platforms) but considering that they are more or less in line with the 4 passing tracks of Entrecampos station I would no dare to call them "isolated" stations (with full rights it should be considered an urban sprawl of platforms).The central quadruple line in lisboa consists of a western junction left of SeteRios station then the S.rios , Entrecampos and Areeiro stations and another junction right of areeiro

Total terminus platforms in lisboa:

Total number of tracks at main stations = 48
total termini platforms at main stations = 19

We should add aonther TOP list ... total number of main/terminal stations ... London would definitely take the cup.

@sotavento: In this thread, only stations with 10 platforms or more count, ok?

Just thought of another station today: Cape Town (ZA). It has 22 platforms.

Is it time already for an updated complete list?

karlsruhe has 14 plattforms and not 27!
Just addin TRUTH to the thread ...

Luckily for you that the Rossio station was unbundled and renewed (rail tracks passed from 10 to 5 ... erm ... do tracks acessible from both sides count as 1 or 2 platforms ??? if so it still has 10 platforms now that I remember it)
Aditionally Entrecampos station had 2 tracks/platforms removed in the last decade (another ex.10 platform station)
Cais do Sodré also had platforms removed recently ... down to 9.

Just imagine that ... a small country poluting the list.


Noticed that Principe Pior is quoted as having 10 platforms ... last time I was there it had only 3 or 4 rail platforms (plus some other 4/5 metro ones) ... when was the list updated for the last time ???

If one is to count tracks without platforms then we would have some stations well over 100 ... and does metro platforms count or not ??? some people include them and others don't.

As you can see, all the tracks end here.

Can anyone create a "standard" for our evaluation of te total number of platforms/tracks in any standard ??? the criteria seems to vary from one to another.


In my local case I fail to cope with stations with platforms in both sides of a single track ... conted them as ONE platform ...


Others are counting 2 parking places in the same track and in the same platform as if they were TWO oe even more different platforms (as It was comon practice in Glasgow) ... we just call it good usag eof limited resources here.

Aditionally ... do stations on the other side of the pond count (not on city proper but maiby on the other side of a river , etc) ???

I'd say:
- Every platform track counts as 1, even if it is divided into a/b sections*
- Only mainline and commuter rail (S-bahn) tracks count, metro/subway not.
- Only stations with >= 10 platforms count for the "City Totals" section.

* Hagen Hbf in Germany makes it difficult, because it splits through tracks into two portions with a different number, so that trains call at, for example, platform 5/6, which is in fact one platform.

Anyway, here's an updated list:

Largest Stations:
