I am confused about the use of articles before the names of subway stations. For example, I found these two examples on the net. I wish to know the safest way one should follow in case of doubt.
- The man died after being shot by officers at the Stockwell subway station in south London.
- Union Station is at the centre of the Quebec City-Windsor Corridor, the busiest inter-city rail service area in the nation.
The 'Stockwell' example sounds odd to me. It could seem from your two examples that this is a simple British/American difference, but not so. Most British people I know would say 'at Stockwell tube'. Of course, it's different when the article is a part of the name, as it is with some place names.
