No, only some important stations have own wikipedia pages. For example
see the Tauern railway in Austria, an important north-south route
through the Alps. It is used by many freight trains and EuroCity long
But when you have a look at either the German article (
https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tauernbahn) or the English article (
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tauern_Railway), you will see that no
station on this line has an own article, although some stations are
served by EuroCity trains.
