Description 

The station was designed by architect Rob Wellington Quigley, and was built in 1994 to replace the depot in Del Mar, California two miles south which had been in use since the early 1900s. Quigley was inspired by a group of Quonset huts that used to line North Cedros Avenue in the 1940s. The architect added a tower reminiscent of those found on many train depots dating to the second half of the 19th century.
