As an Aussie, I just put "train station." I don't know that they are much called "subway stations" or "tube stations here."

"Subway station" is used when referring to underground trains, such as those in London and New York. I have also heard British people say "metro" in movies, when they are speaking about the London subway. Train stations are usually above ground, but if I were in NYC and heard somebody say, "I'm going to take the train," I would know what they meant even if I knew that they meant the subway.

Tube station??? In my city we have light rail trains that run underground, but they are not subways, and definitely nobody here has ever called it a tube. Duolingo, please change your possible correct answers to be more inclusive.
