With 1.2.0-RC2 it is possible to build trains stations on top of already excisting stations. This goes also for bus stations and lorry loading bays. Road/rail deports and airports don't allow this.
This task depends upon

Overbuilding is allowed by design; it allows you to adjust the looks (using other station tiles) after you built it for efficiency.

Airports don't allow overbuilding as they each have a complicated state machine which is basically a fixed movement pattern for planes.
It would be feasible to allow depots being overbuilt, if they're empty.

Allowing depots to be overbuilt would certainly be useful.

See FS#6617 for one possible solution to over-building depots.
