On this graph vertical axis represents distance d and horizontal axis represents time t.

Uniform motion between the stations is represented by the segments of straight lines (d = vt, where v, the speed, is constant.)

The periods where the train is standing at the station is represented by the segments of the horizontal lines. (v = 0, so the time t is passing but the distance d remains constant.)
