Derby/Shelton the first stop on the Waterbury Branch after trains leave New Haven. The station is located is a secluded corner just below a large interchange with CT Route 8, which is an expressway. The station itself is also low level like all the intermediate Waterbury Branch Stations (excluding Waterbury itself). The station's single side platform on the single tracked like hasn't been touched by Metro-North. It's a low level concrete platform with a painted yellow line along the platform's edge. The station house is still in tacked although it no longer serves a railway use. The large brick station house with bricks and lots of brown colored gabled now has a Department of Motor Vehicles Photo License Center and some other establishments. The platform is almost fully canopied by a wooden shingled canopy that is an extension of the station house roof. The only waiting element for passengers is a glorified bus shelter on one end of the platform. There are no TVMs like the rest of the stations on the Waterbury Branch.
