Main article: Railway stations

A building used to access a railway station, also known as a station building, station house, or head house. It may contain amenities such as a ticket office/machine, toilets, ticket barriers, etc.

It should be mapped separately from the railway=station tag as they may have different names.

There may be multiple train station buildings per railway station.

The railway=station element also carries the name tag for the station as a whole. Individual buildings (e.g., different "terminals" of large station) might also have a name tag if the buildings have special name different from the station name.
