|Truly a grand entrance right here.|
|Back on the Woodland Road side. Hoooo, boy.|
|The station...viewed from above.|
|Ohhh, this is a good one.|
|The simply beautiful shelter.|
|At least there's parking...|
|A train leaning around the curve.|
Ridership: Well...in terms of inbound ridership, it's the busiest of the three Newton stations. 325 passengers per weekday really isn't that much, though. On the Saturday I was here, though, a whole one other person was going inbound! Crazy.
Pros: Well...it exists...that's good...
Cons: Hmm...the horrible staircases? The bare asphalt platform? The fact that there's only one? The bland, dirty shelter? The overflowing wastebaskets? The proximity to the highway? The noise? The trash everywhere? The meager parking lot? ALL OF IT.
Nearby and Noteworthy: Okay, there is a business block nearby. But it only fits half the equation, since it doesn't seem particularly noteworthy.
Final Verdict: 1/10
This station is sooooooooo bad. It doesn't have any redeeming values except for the fact that it's there. It has the lowest amount of parking of the Newton stations, especially considering that Riverside is right down the road with its huge lot. Oh, and also, the station itself is dingy, bland, and overall horrible! Yup, Auburndale clearly deserves to be this blog's first recipient of a 1/10. Congratulations?
