Random Tubeway Car Stations

So, I've been making random tables for a generic dungeon, so I got thinking that I should make some for Tekumel and Empire of the Petal Throne. I'm also experimenting with a format where you roll one of each die (d4, d6, d8, d10, d12, and d20). So here's the first one.

So, you're in the Jakallan underworld, being chased by a troop of Ahoggya that you interrupted during their elaborate sex ritual (eight sexes, each with four legs and arms, imagine the geometries). You come to a large room with a large floating egg in it. There is an open door. The room appears to be a dead-end. You run inside the egg and the door closes. You see an array of ten buttons on a panel in the front of the egg. You push one in desperation. The door closes.

Now you wait. A several hours later, the door opens. Where are you?

This quick and easy generator will create a random tubeway car station. When a section mentions a die, such as d8, use the existing roll for that die from the other section.
