Kostner Station (CTA Pink Line)
Kostner, formerly known as Kildare, is a station on the Chicago Transit Authority's 'L' system, serving the Pink Line. It is located in the K-Town neighborhood of the North Lawndale community area, often just referred to as Lawndale. Kostner station was originally opened as Kildare. During reconstruction in 2003, its primary entrance was moved one block west to Kostner Avenue and the Kildare entrance became an auxiliary entrance. This is the first station outbound on the Pink Line to be located at ground level.Contents1 Notes and references1.1 Notes 1.2 References2 External linksNotes and references[edit] Notes[edit]^ Due to possible double-counting of physically-connected stations, the CTA's official 2015 tally of stations was 146, but for ridership purposes reported having only 143 stations.References[edit]^ "Monthly Ridership Report – December 2015" (PDF).

Kostner (CTA Congress Line Station)
Kostner is an abandoned rapid transit station in the West Garfield Park neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois. The station served the Chicago Transit Authority's Congress Line, which is now part of the Blue Line. Kostner opened on August 5, 1962; it was the only station on the Congress Line which was not opened with the line on June 22, 1958.[1] The station closed on September 2, 1973, due to low ridership.Contents1 History 2 Structure 3 References 4 External linksHistory[edit] When the CTA planned the Congress Line, they did not plan to put a station at Kostner. The Pulaski and Cicero stations were both close to Kostner, and the CTA felt that the lower population density of West Garfield Park did not need an additional station. It was also trying to cut down on stations in order to reduce travel times and increase efficiency

Island Platform
An island platform (also center platform, centre platform) is a station layout arrangement where a single platform is positioned between two tracks within a railway station, tram stop or transitway interchange. Island platforms are popular on twin-track routes due to pragmatic and cost-effective reasons. They are also useful within larger stations where local and express services for the same direction of travel can be provided from opposite sides of the same platform thereby simplifying transfers between the two tracks. An alternative arrangement is to position side platforms on either side of the tracks.Contents1 Layout 2 Advantages and tradeoffs 3 Examples 4 Unused sides of island platforms 5 Gallery 6 See also 7 ReferencesLayout[edit]Island platformLegendTwo tracks and one island platformThis section needs expansion.
