    "And" or "Or"?

    If some limited express trains skip at Station A and Station B, which one is correct?

    Not all limited express trains stop at Station A and Station B.

    or

    Not all limited express trains stop at Station A or Station B.

    or

    Since the sense is negative, ‘or’ is appropriate. It is still better with either/or:
    Not all limited express trains stop either at Station A or Station B.
