I entered the station but stopped at/on the steps that led into it.

If you said to me that you are on the steps it would suggest you are actually standing on one of the steps being referred to. If you said you are at the steps it would suggest you are in the vicinity of the steps. Furthermore, it would suggest both you and the person you are communicating with understand what steps you are talking about.
