    I mean, it's a train station. But its close to the shopping center and TGI Fridays if there are delays.

    When the train arrives, don't stand in front of the doors. When you do, people can't get off the train.

    After buying your ticket please move AWAY from the machines so those who have yet to buy theirs, can before the train comes.

    Packed on Fridays, you would want to come early and stand right in front of the doors that open up at 5:00pm.
