What are some typical types of food that I can expect to see at train stops?

Also, what is something you wouldn't even dream of eating (besides pani puri)?

It's pretty much the same stuff that you'd find on the streets, but it just wouldn't be as tasty. It's best for you go to an actual restaurant before your ride and get some food to-go and eat it on the train when you get hungry. Train stations also have packaged food like chips, cookies, etc...Some of the larger stations will have a vendor with a small stove making dosas, idlis, and puris which are probably pretty safe to eat, but that depends on your immunity levels.

A personal trick: buy idli's and eat them with your own sugar.

EDIT:

I forgot that a few of the really large train stations will actually have restaurants (tiffin centers) that will have regular tiffin foods (dosas, idlis, vada, etc...) and also serve full meals during lunch and dinner hours, but the food is usually REALLY bad.
