Some "ordinary" things just deserve to become wayspots

Ordinarily, a mere "train stop" has no real business becoming a wayspot. One stop is the same as any other stop. But this popped up in my feeds today:

which (thanks to a quick google maps search) is roughly here on the Ingress intel map (no, it's not already a wayspot):

tl;dr This train stop doesn't go anywhere, it's literally just there so that riders can take some time out to appreciate the scenery. Which, as seen in this photosphere, is quite lovely.
