87rd Street/Woodruff is a simple Metra flag stop (on hourly or better off-peak trains) with a small 2 car long wooden-high level island platform with four black white domed bus shelters for waiting passengers. This platform is in between the middle two tracks of the four track electrified Metra Line with two additional freight and Amtrak tracks to the east. To leave the platform, all passengers must pass through a small wooden hunt at the southern end of the platform with doors on both ends. Just a bench and information phone (in a silver enclosure that looks like a payphone) is inside. From here a staircase leads down to about a 50 foot-long low-level platform area (with small wooden boarding areas for trains on the outside tracks). Continuing, a tall a grey portal with two doorways surrounds the one staircase off the platform down to the north sidewalk of 87th Street's underpass bewteen Dauphin/Ingleside Avenue and Dobson Avenue.
