Different stations are used for passenger service.
Some big railways stations called terminals (usually the main station of a big city) provide variety of services:
- ticket offices
- waiting rooms
- baggage room
- inquiry service
- first-aid post
- currency exchanger
Small railway stations can have just a waiting room and a ticket office, but some of them can have nothing at all, even no platform. It depends on its location and country. Small stations can be closed at night if there're no passenger trains at night.
Terminals are usually open round-the-clock, because there're lots of night trains usually.
