Railway Station
A train station, railway station, railroad station, or depot (see below) is a railway facility or area where trains regularly stop to load or unload passengers or freight.

Island Platform
An island platform (also center platform, centre platform) is a station layout arrangement where a single platform is positioned between two tracks within a railway station, tram stop or transitway interchange. Island platforms are popular on twin-track routes due to pragmatic and cost-effective reasons. They are also useful within larger stations where local and express services for the same direction of travel can be provided from opposite sides of the same platform thereby simplifying transfers between the two tracks. An alternative arrangement is to position side platforms on either side of the tracks.Contents1 Layout 2 Advantages and tradeoffs 3 Examples 4 Unused sides of island platforms 5 Gallery 6 See also 7 ReferencesLayout[edit]Island platformLegendTwo tracks and one island platformThis section needs expansion.
