Rock Island train stopped at Vermont St. station

This station has an odd configuration and setup. Read the note above for some more information. Basically, there's no platform on the west side.

 

Because the train operator must line up the car doors with the evenly spaced walkways, they must slow the train down far in advance so the train will stop at the precise location. This causes for motorists a longer than normal delay at the Vermont St. intersection.
