My wife found an ad on facebook marketplace for a 1910 train station reversible bench.  The back flips over so you can face the other direction.  Anyway, we went and looked at it and bought it.  I snapped this picture before I left.  I am picking it up at the end of the week and will take more.  I was also told it was the original finish.  It is 8' 4" long...Does anyone know much about train station benches like this one?

I believe the bench would have been used in a station. I have seen station benches where the back was able to change position. Allowed you to face a different direction if you wanted too. Plus, if it was on a trolley it would have had a way to anchor it to the floor, which I don't see. Very cool piece.
