In terms of platform capacity, the world's largest train station is Grand Central Terminal in New York City, USA.
The world's largest train station, in terms of floor area, is Nagoya Station in Nagoya, Japan. However, the Nagoya Station complex incorporates two office towers and an underground shopping concourse, so the railway terminal itself is not large in comparison to others. Shinjuku Station is the second largest.

Longest by number of platforms i.e 44 platforms with 67 tracks along them, all underground.

Three previous buildings serving the same purpose have stood on this site since 1871.
The current Grand Central Station was built by the New York Central Railroad with the intention of drawing passengers away from its rival, Pennsylvania Railroad. Beginning in 1903, the remains of the previous structures were systematically demolished, to make room for the new station, which was completed in 1913.

It is a terminal station at 42nd Street and Park Avenue in Midtown Manhattan in New York City. Built by and named for the New York Central Railroad in the heyday of American long-distance passenger trains, it is the largest train station in the world by number of platforms: 44, with 67 tracks along them. They are on two levels, both below ground, with 41 tracks on the upper level and 26 on the lower, though the total number of tracks along platforms and in rail yards exceeds 100.

Its a quiet controversial question depending on one's definition of LARGE and on the other hand there is a difference between a TERMINAL & a STATION.
Note that it's the largest TERMINAL not STATION.
