Description

This is a two platform station with a passing loop on the Far North line. The northbound platform retains its station building, now a house, and a goods yard exists to the south, west side of the line, currently in permanent way maintenance use. The station was known, until 1977, by the name of the nearby bridge (and town) which was on the road north but is now named for the village where the station is located. The reason for the original name was because this was formerly a terminus, named for the route north rather than the town in which it was situated.
