Didn't the original concept for the LR line down Allison Rd have the
stop on the racecourse side, but the racecourse objected to the LR
blocking the front of their main entrance (they wanted to build a motel
or something that would have required a grand road entrance or something
to that effect.

The racecourse them selves objected to a more sensible design for the LR
stop. They would have had 'kittens' over the idea of a loop adjacent to
their site!.
