    From means that it is departing from the station near the bank, while you can catch a train at the station near the bank.

As Michael says, both can be used. Nevertheless, what I personally feel is that it depends on the context.

I'd use from the station in the context of catching a train or if the purpose is journey. On the other hand, if I'm just telling the location of a train, I may prefer at. Compare:

Hurry, the train is at the station.


I am catching train from the station.

Thus, in your case, though both prepositions may work, I'd prefer from. We generally say catch train from New York station, don't we?

  • Yes. The trains to Manchester depart from London Euston, and arrive at Manchester Piccadilli.

The sentence means the speaker suggests the listener that he/she should catch the train at the nearby station.I think at / from the station seem to be the correct option here.A train travel from one station to the other.But we can catch a train from / at a particular station. Both the prepositions are correct.

You still can get a train to your destination at/ from the station near the bank
