|The street leading to the station.|
|That's a biiiiiiiiiiig parking lot.|
|I didn't see any trains when I was here, but SEAGULLS!|
Ridership: There weren't any trains coming for another hour when I was here, so the station was dead. However, Campello is ultimately the second-busiest station in Brockton, with almost 700 inbound riders per weekday. I guess most of those people walk or take the bus here, since the parking lot is so empty all the time. The station is in a pretty dense neighborhood, after all.
Pros: It's a typical Old Colony station, so it gets the job done. The fact that it's fully high-level is certainly a plus. Also, it has a huge (perhaps unnecessarily so) parking lot, which could contain a lot of cars if people actually drove here.
Cons: I guess Campello's only problem is that it has that Old Colony blandness going on. You know, there's the stark platform, the huge asphalt parking lot, and the bland metal shelter, none of which help it out much in the visual department.
Nearby and Noteworthy: The surroundings are mostly either residential or industrial, but there are a few businesses on nearby Main Street.
Final Verdict: 8/10
Like many Old Colony stops, I don't have much to say here. Campello is a perfectly efficient station that may look a bit boring, but it gets the job done. Um...well, it also seems to attract seagulls. Wooooooo.
