Main article: Railway Stations

A train station building. The tag is a classification of a building type. See also Buildings

This tag might share the same element as the railway=station tag, or might be used on several elements (several buildings). Buildings might all lie within a railway=station area (working in the same way as with multiple buildings within a hospital or university) or railway=station might be on a node. In any case there should be only one railway=station tagged element for the station (See also One feature, one OSM element).

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.

Station buildings, which now have a different use also are supposed to be be tagged with building=train_station.
