Hey, it’s an Old Colony station that actually has something noteworthy about it! It’s just too bad that one noteworthy thing is also terrible…but we’ll get to that. Here’s Halifax!
|Coming into the station.|
It starts out pretty boring, though. The station is, of course, located in the complete middle of nowhere, although the tracks don’t go anywhere near Halifax’s center, so I’ll give it a pass. A long road leads to the station’s entrance and parking lot, with 402 spaces. There is also a bike rack near the entrance, with 8 spaces.
|Looking down the platforms.|
The platforms are completely standard for the Old Colony. They’re high-level, with shelters, advertisements, screens, benches, and wastebaskets. The platform stretches into the woods for a while, with mostly signs and benches, although there is an extra shelter on one of the sides. Which side is it? Hang on…
|The extra shelter.|
There’s no signage saying where the trains go! All passengers get is “Platform #1” and “Platform #2.” Maybe this is common knowledge and I just didn’t know it, but I had to use this page to figure out that “Platform 1” means outbound and “Platform 2” means inbound. Although strangely, our train to Boston boarded on Platform 2. Soooooo…now I’m confused…?
