Overview

Opened: 8/23/1907

Express station with four tracks and two island platforms. A tower is on an elevated structure over the south end of the station. There are three available entrance/exits: Quentin Road (south of station), the main entrance (south side of Kings Highway), and an automated entrance on the north side of Kings Highway. The main entrance had a station house very similar to that of the local stations, only a little more ample. It was totally replaced in the 1980s with the present open front forecourt.
