Approximately 1000 trains per day, which is not bad at all for a city of
1.5 million inhabitants (compare with a city of similar importance in
France, for example...)

Controlled by one giant electric relays tower (built in the 70ies) with a few
computerized extensions.

Leads to 4 main lines to the south (one of them 4 tracks, the 3 others 2) and
to the north, to the north-south connection, going through Brussels
underground to Central and North, 6 tracks all the way, 20
trains/hour on each track during the peak hours.

Nice place for train watching.

Pax levels (2007):

Brussels-Central: 74 000
Brussels-South: 50 000
Gent SP: 45 000
Brussels-North: 40 000

These figures are passengers getting on a train, not the total number of passengers that use the railway station.

Bussiest Railway Station In Your Country??
For us in the Czech Republic are now a few railway stations, for example: Ostrava-Svinov, hl.n. Prague, Olomouc hl.n., hl.n. Pardubice, Czech Třebová, Brno hl.n. and many others. Most of the busiest train station is situated on the corridors.
