Anyone know where I could find a decent symbol for subway/skytrain stations?

Most stations that I have seen are either filled circles or circles with colored outlines, but that design decision may have been predicated on trying to show different train lines. Are you just showing one subway/skytrain?

I think he may mean showing a station on a larger map perhaps? Much like how GoogleMaps presents transit stops? If you are making simply a 'transit map' then a circle or a "tick" can easily represent a stop
