Overview

Opened: 12/19/1889

Two tracks, two side platforms. The platforms are very narrow on the north end, and a small wooden mezzanine. There is a crossunder. The northbound platform's southern half has vertical windscreen with a small gap near the top and no windscreen on the northern half. The southbound platform features vertical windscreen on the northern half. Evidence present at this station leads me to a theory that the southern mezzanine was removed. Evidence includes a patch in the windscreen, suddenly narrowed platforms, and a patch in the concrete where the stairs would have been.
