The railroad station is on the shores of the Hudson River and has a very small park beside it. You can park your car and use the park, however, there are train tracks between you and the river so you really can't go to the river! We just drove in and drove out.
For individuals interested in FDR, a quick trip down to the train station is worthwhile. Before we traveled to Hyde Park, my husband and I read FDR's Funeral Train.

We drove by the train station. There isn't much to see. It isn't open. There are some old railroad signs and the view is nice. It takes five minutes to see it and drive off the main route highway 9. We enjoyed the quick stop.
I would have to tell you that this is used for storage and to fuel park service trucks. I was told that it is staffed by volunteers but on several tries not one was to be seen. There are no signs with hours or explanation. It is a beautiful old building and worth the walk around to view the architecture.
Unless you are taking the train, this is not a station to admire and photograph. It is about 2 minutes from the main drag, but really not worth the effort.
The train station has very limited hours, and we couldn't get in to see anything inside it. We didn't call ahead or check the hours before we drove there (in our travels around Hyde Park), so that was our problem, but it would've been fun to see their displays.
