Junius Street seems like it's a regular, sleepy elevated station on the Livonia Avenue el. It has two side platforms that are canopied and wind screened for their entire length. The station through has been one that has undergone regular pressure from riders to have a free transfer with the Livonia Avenue Station on the L Canarsie line that has an entrance about a block and a half from this stations entrance, and more importantly the only thing separating this station platforms and the Ls is about 250 feet, this means that a bridge could be built extending the Manhattan-bound platform, and would end directly above the L's platform where staircases would be to carry passengers down to those respected platforms. There is currently already an un-electrified track connection that makes its way off the New Lots-bound 3 train's track just beyond the stations platforms and makes its way down to the L trains lower right of way that is shared here with the New York Connecting Railway. Within the station because of this track connection the stop has a third middle track that just exists for basically the length of this station's platforms.
For exiting the station there is a single headhouse beneath the tracks at about the middle of the station platforms, two staircases lead down from the station platforms to this fare control area with the token booth and turnstiles. Two exit staircases lead to a location that is in fact a block from Junius Street itself (Junius Street is along the extreme northern end of the platforms) to the southern sidewalk of Livonia Avenue between Powell Street and Sackman Street.
