What would be the counter for train stations?

For example, "two more stops" would be 後駅を二つ...? It seems a bit unnatural.

you can say things like:

  • 2個{こ}先{さき}
  • 2つ先
  • となりのとなり
  • あと二駅{ふたえき}
  • つぎのつぎ
  • 1
    I think "あと二駅{ふたえき}" is commonly used. I use "2つ先{さき}" more than "2個先{こさき}, though "2個先{こさき}" is mainly used by youngsters. – mackygoo Jul 8 '17 at 2:24
  • @mackygoo Good point. I added it as an option. For numbers below 10 個 and つ are generally interchangeable – paullb Jul 8 '17 at 2:56

    「つぎのつぎ」とかどおでしょ?(counter使わないけど) – Chocolate Jul 8 '17 at 5:03
  • 「二駅」のように何駅まであがれる?「みそ駅」はないでしょうw – Sjiveru Jul 8 '17 at 23:47
