Haven't seen any on the web. What would you like to know about it?

Here's some quick info on the station....it is a single track, single low-level platform station, with wheelchair accessible high-level platform at the south end. The station is only about 1/4 to a 1/2 mile from Canton Junction, and is right at Washington Street Canton. All Southbound trains must stop at a stop board just beyond the platform to activate the crossing gates, because it is designed so that the crossing apparatus doesn't activate while the train is making it's station stop.........simply to reduce delays to traffic in the center of town. The station is also in the middle of Center Interlocking.
