This is a three platform station, with two active platforms on either side of the double track in use.

The station was rebuilt and enlarged in 1911 when it was jointly Caledonian Railway and North British Railway.

This junction was directly north of today's Arbroath station. It was the connection between the Arbroath and Forfar Railway of 1838 and the Junction Line (Dundee and Arbroath Railway) of 1847 which linked the A&F to the Dundee and Arbroath Railway.
