Americans will call it a railway station too, though train station is more common.

I used to know a Bob Minden once, who was about my grandmother's vintage. I think he ended up in Switzerland. He had two sons, Nicholas and George who were about my mother's vintage. George had a girl about my age and I think a son who was younger. Your surname is not a common one. That is why I mentioned it.

The daughter you mention is my sister Michaela, and the son is Nick. Hard to believe you knew my grandfather!

Could you also say, "stați de tren"?
