I didn't spend much time but it was a thrill to see it, a true relic from the past. They did tell me it is the only station left from the British.

This cool service station has been historically remodeled with a great deal of work from what it was just a few years ago. I'm glad the creepy stuffed animals are finally gone from the top while it was under construction.
