Farmington is the most complicated FrontRunner Station. It has the standard two tracks with a side platform serving trains bound for Salt Lake City, and an island platform (that allows both tracks to platform), but only serve Ogden-bound trains on the west side track. It is a station where trains meet to pass one another. The two platforms are connected by three pedestrian crossings over the Salt Lake City-bound track, one at either end of the station platforms, and one in the middle (the only station to have a crossing not just at the end of the platforms). The station has this unusual layout because it is the only one where access is from the west side of the train line. This requires passengers to cross-over the adjacent Union Pacific Tracks, and a pedestrian overpass is provided for this. This overpass has mesh walled and a red roof. Access is provided by a staircase and two elevators at each end. One side leads to the station's large parking lot and the opposite side leads back down to only the side platform. The platforms have longer than normal white canopy structures with curved blue roofs at their southern ends. Connecting the two canopies on the side platform is a nice, white decorative arch with an old style Farmington Station sign, (2013 Visit: Removed), Lagoon is decoratively written in lettering on the top of the arch above it. Beyond the station parking lots within walking distance is Station Park, a transit oriented development that is a shopping center with residences planned for later stages.
