You beat me to it, posting about my hometown! :-D

Ridgefield Supply did a great job with this. The restoration/reconstruction relocated the station building about 50' south and west of its original location, moving it much closer to Prospect St. They also removed the ca. 1905 butterfly platform sheds that had (amazingly) survived as lumber storage-- the design of these was identical to those at New Canaan.

The track in the picture would have been in back of the original depot. I have no idea where they got the stick rail and bumper post but it's all properly bolted together and spiked to the ties.
