This is a one platform station on the Far North line with a permanent way siding to the south on the east side of the line, the former goods yard.

This was a two platform station was a passing loop. The northbound loop is removed (1966) and northbound platform is out of use, although it still features the water base. A station building/stationmaster's house exists on the southbound platform in use as a house. A felled water column lies at the south end and there are remains of tablet catchers.

Due to possible drifting snow, this was a location where signal wires were mounted on poles.
