I only ran across it once, and that was around 1995, so details are a bit murky. It was on tracks just north ( less than a mile, I'd say) of the the Susquehanna, somewhere west of Bainbridge, NY, and east of Horseheads. It was just east of a north-south road, and on the north side of the tracks, maybe 50' off the road. The tracks were bordered by trees on both sides (no open fields, etc). It had a peaked roof, and the roof overhang was supported by brackets made of angle iron curved into a circle. Although that sounds a bit similar to the "pagoda" style stations, those that have circular brackets have ones made of wood. It also didn't have the ticket window bump-out of the pagodas. Just a straight front with a couple of big doors for freight.
