Description

This is a two platform station in a cutting to the east of Alexandra Park Street. The line is crossed by Alexandra Parade to the south with ramps down to the platforms. There is no car park. Alexandra Park is to the east.

The main station building was on the corder of Alexandra Parade and Alexandra Park at street level. It survived intact until the late 1980s but has been lost. The entire west side of the station has a new retaining wall dating from road widening. Platform buildings, added about 1900, are long gone.

To the south was Haghill Junction, for the now closed route to Parkhead Junction [NB]. Within the 'V' of the junction was Haghill Goods.
