What is the Biggest station in the UK? I mean in sense on how many platforms.

My first guess would be Edinburgh Waverley with 21 platforms. :D

Im properly wrong though :roll:

Clapham Junction (which is essentially 3 different stations joined together and sharing the same name & platform sequence) only has 16 platforms (Numbered 2-17).

Edinburgh AFAIAA doesn't have 21 platforms, they are numbered up to 21, but they aren't all in use, with some different numbers being the same platform.

The most is Waterloo. 1-19 on the domestic side. International is another 5. Waterloo East has A to D, and the Waterloo & City Line platforms are numbered 25 and 26. Then the "real" Underground platforms add another 6, for 36.

You have the main platforms (1-17) then a small walk over to 18 & 19 then you have to go downstairs and into the 'International' section to get access to platform 20.

What about Grand Central, New York?
Largest in the world by platform numbers, 44, with 67 tracks.
