    The first is not possible.
    The second is possible but more likely, depending on your intended shade of meaning, is one of the following:

    I am waiting for the train as is everybody (else) at the station.
    I am waiting for the train like any/everybody at the station.
    I am waiting for the train like everybody else at the station.

    Aachu (bless you),

    Note that Waiting for the train would have been a great title for this thread.
