Unless someone knows otherwise, this would suggest that it was the north track that was removed all those years ago. It seems the right-of-way on one side was squared-off to a 4-track width, but I can't come up with any evidence that there were ever more than 2 there.

There is a map of the area around the Arboretum, though, cutting off at South Street and showing the circa 1915 station. I haven't found on that goes further west from this point.
