There is certainly not enough parking outside of the station lots to accommodate the volume of those who carry and store in their cars--and it would be pretty obvious that their cars contained firearms. Not a good plan.
Under the law you are allowed to store it in your locked car in the parking lot of a prohibited place, and just outside your car in order to put it in your trunk.

What is the parking lot exemption for CCL holders in prohibited places?

Notwithstanding any prohibition to the contrary - except those pertaining to property regulated by the federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission or where firearms are prohibited under federal law, any licensee prohibited from carrying a concealed firearm into the parking area of a prohibited location shall be permitted to carry a concealed firearm on or about his or her person within a vehicle into the parking area and may store a firearm or ammunition concealed in a case within a locked vehicle or locked container out of plain view within the vehicle in the parking area. A licensee may carry a concealed firearm in the immediate area surrounding his or her vehicle within a prohibited parking lot area only for the limited purpose of storing or retrieving a firearm within the vehicles trunk , provided the licensee ensures the concealed firearm is unloaded prior to exiting the vehicle.
