@Yardmaster, can you please confirm the Melbourne count, as I was a bit confused by how many are actual "live" platforms.

I am realy surprised that Melbourne is in that list. Never knew that Australia is a big railway country.

How many new platforms does Berlin's new "main station" have? I've looked all over the place, and haven't found a single figure. I'm aware there's an east-west (above ground) set of lines and platforms as well as north-south axis below ground.

Edit: Beaten to by Justme.

I'm not Yardmaster, but I can tell you that 13 platforms is about right - platform 1 is 700m long but most of it is fenced off because most of it is not needed and not used. There's also platform 14 which is an extension of platform 1, but it's used very rarely. There was a platform that had its tracks removed though, I can't remember if that's been counted or not. All my trains stop at platform 6 or 7 so it doesn't concern me :P

And in the first post, as he said, there's 14 platforms that are currently operational - but some platforms are long enough and have the track and signalling to fit multiple trains. I'd count platform 8 South as a separate platform though.

The number of platforms certainly gives no indication at all of how busy a station is. It also doesnt give a precise indication of the size.

Many old stations have large numbers of platforms whereas modern stations usually have less platforms because they can be operated more effectively.
