Wiki says the same but doesn't reference its source, naughty. Interesting never the less, I hadn't heard this before.
EDIT: Just noticed that you are editing the article so that's why you are asking! Carry on.The station has two platforms, however at one stage the station actually had six with two lines on either side of the current railway track, with the current two platforms operated as island platforms. This configuration was unusual as nearby stations on the line were actually built with four lines - two for local trains and two for express services. Remnants of the closed platforms can still be seen.
