Tenants live at the station and look after it as a museum. Although most of the line's track has been removed, the land is still zoned for railway use, and track still exists for 1 km on either side of the station. The DSCR tourist railway plans to re-lay and restore track in the future. Some rolling stock is still kept in the former yard.
By 1969, the platform was 80 metres in length, with an 18.5-metre carriage dock, and by 1975, a crane and weighbridge existed at the station.
