    [Apart from the typo, your spelling is correct; "railway" - one word.]

    Either, depending on meaning:

    The 10.45 stops at the railway station.
    The 10.45 was already in [the railway station] when they arrived.

    ...or
    There's a bookshop at the railway station.
    Where, exactly?
    Right in the railway station - on the left just before the ticket machines.
