Station layoutEdit

The station features a parking lot on both sides, and a waiting room with a bathroom.[6] The station also has a pedestrian crossing with two railroad crossing signs that each have two yellow lights which always blink. The station has two tracks that run through, although only one of those tracks are used for passenger service. Lincoln Park has a roughly 1 mile (1.6 km)-long siding that runs right through the station that is dispatcher controlled. It was formerly used for meets before midday service was discontinued, and no longer sees service by revenue trains.
