Sundar said: (Jul 22, 2010)  
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.

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.
