I want to add: At least in Germany, Switzerland and Austria there are 
well-established german words which you often find in the name of the 
stations themselves:

* "Talstation" ("valley station")
* "Bergstation" ("mountain station"), sometimes also "Gipfelstation" 
("summit station")
* "Mittelstation" ("mid station")

There should be a machine-readeably tagging to get this information that 
is so often encoded in the name. That's why I'm suggesting this tagging.
