A: I have just arrived means arrived at the time of telling the sentence
Q: What is the difference between station and terminal ?
A: In theory, a "terminal"
Is the very END station. (It TERMINATES the line.) So a subway line or bus route with ten stations or stops would have two terminal (endpoint) stations.

So the distinction is sometimes muddied these days, when more people are familiar with air travel.

Other questions about "Station"

Q: When you go to the station, first of all, cross that pedestrian bridge. Then, just go straight until you come to a rotary. Does this sound natural?
A: The directions you gave are understandable. Don't worry about that. But note, when giving directions we don't usually use the expression "first of all". We just say, "First," When I think about the times I say "First of all..." I'm usually being defensive in some kind of argument or discussion. To get off topic a bit (in case you are interested)...so for example. I might be in an argument with someone who says "Hey, why didn't you do x,y, z!?" and a common US English reply might be"First of all, [x]....secondly, [y] and thirdly, [z]".

"First of all, you need to change your tone with me" (I'm sure this has been said by many US moms to their children or couples to each other).

"First of all, I was busy and second of all, it's none of your business"

Hope this little segway is helpful! Let me know if you have any more questions about my original reply.
