Brewster is the first stop in Putnam County on the Harlem Line. It is the second to last stop northbound on the electrified portion of the line and has the normal island platform that opened in 1984 for electrification. The stop has connecting bus service (on HARTransit CityBus Route 3) to Danbury during the middle of weekdays hourly from 9:30am to 2:30pm, this means an easy railfan's train riding loop can be made via Danbury (something your webmaster did twice in the early days of this website).

The current station has a single island platform that begins just south of the grade-crossing of Ellen Avenue (with no platform access) and runs south, accommodating just four cars. At the corner of Ellen Avenue and Main Street is the historic Tudor style 1931 station house, that is now the Dining Car cafe and across from a clock in the historic town center. A single pedestrian bridge with an elevator and staircase at each end towards middle of the platform provides all platform access. The entrance staircase is at the southern end of the historic depot with canopies providing coverage to all platform access. Passengers on the platform have a small, canopied area extending from the staircase.
