I want to ask that what does took the train up in that sentence? a,b or c?
The closest is C, but your version is not grammatical. Parser's rewrite of the third one is your choice.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
"He took the train up to New York" means that he has already travelled by train, and has already arrived in New York by that mode of transport.
To take the train is more American English. In British English we would generally say "to get the train".
And "up" and "down" are regularly used when referring to travel, usually depending on which direction someone is going. I would say "up" if travelling north, and "down" if travelling south.
