A recently renovated express station with four tracks and two island platforms. The old lights at the ends of the platform have been retained and modernized with vapor lights. The station platforms have a rustic appearance due to its surroundings and their location on an S-curve. At the south end exit (at Voorhies Road) is a brick station house, decorated with seashell accents, and includes a heated waiting area at street level.
