generally it is better to have only _one_ station where there is only
one station. Currently there are discussions on talk-de to draw
railway=station as polygons (not only the building but the whole part
that forms the station, often this includes open air parts as well).
The station building could get the tag building=train_station.

doesn't seem right to me. The tracks should connect and be there also
in those parts that are inside the station. I'd consider flagging
these parts additionally with covered=yes.
