Since there are baggage doors on the station, are you thinking about an elevator to move bags from train-level to station-level?  That was actually pretty common even in the late 19th century.  You could do it as a visible elevator at one end of the platform.  Lots of visual interest with that!!

Vince,
 Neat seeing the station photo you posted with the bi level Metra commuter cars.
Rode them for over a dozen years to get downtown from the GMO-IC Glenn Yard on the south side and from CNW Crystal Lake - McHenry on the NW side.
 You might have to send me your timetable and pricing to buy a 10 ride or monthly ticket.
Nice built on the depot.

Vince you’re doing an amazing job, the shingle job you did looks fantastic. I think the most difficult task in building our railroads is getting just the right elevations for structures, track and scenery to come together.
Have you given any thought to painting a backdrop?
