Central Station

Central station is a common element in the names of railway stations. Stations which are called Central (or the local-language equivalent) are often centrally located within the place served, but this is not always the case and the name can exist for other reasons. The Central station may not be the main station in a particular settlement, as the main station may be elsewhere (for example Exeter Central railway station).
