DescriptionView of the railroad crossing and the station building. There is a railroad crossing sign and a signal tower next to the building. Across the tracks is a water crane. Just beyond the station, the tracks split into two and the further one merges with another set of tracks. Near that point is a shed and piles of railroad ties. To the back of the station building are several other buildings in a clump of trees.
