number of platform faces
number of continuous platform edges facing a track or vehicle guideway in a station (often, but not always, the same as P1103 and the number of platform numbers). See property talk page for illustrated samples
Data typeQuantity
Domaintransportation stop (Q548662)
Allowed unitsnot applicable
Usage notesA 'platform face' is a single continuous platform edge that is facing one or more tracks or vehicle guideways, regardless of the number of stopping positions or unique tracks along that edge. In contrast, a 'platform track' (P1103) is a part of a track or guideway which faces the length of at least one platform. Refer to the talk page for complete examples.
Faces that are partially fenced are still considered a single face provided that the edge is entirely continuous. However, a face that is completely blocked off is omitted from the total. (Discuss any special cases on this property's talk page.)
Property translators: please take extra care when naming and describing this property to distinguish it from "number of platform tracks" (P1103). A more precise definition is being used for this property.

Description of P1103Edit

Pizza1016, I've changed your description of number of platform tracks (P1103) because as I understand it it's supposed to generally describe the number of tracks relevant to passengers (i.e. those tracks which would be numbered in e.g. American and Japanese contexts), so a track with a platform face on both sides would be one "platform track", and a track with two non-contiguous platforms facing it would be two "platform tracks" (as otherwise a BRT line might be considered to have one very long "platform track" constituting the road which the roadside faces).
