Description

This was a single platform station on the south side of the line and west of a level crossing.

From east of the station a loop ran east to Blackston Junction. North of the station was the goods yard, served from the east across the level crossing. A goods loop ran from west of the station to east of the station.

At an earlier date there were loops to the east of the level crossing, the station to the west and the line was single track.

The station site has been landscaped, the trackbed west is now a dirt road. Level crossing gates survived into the 1980s. The goods yard is housing and an industrial estate.
