This is a two platform station. The station opened with the re-opening of the Rutherglen and Coatbridge Branch (Caledonian Railway) to a local train service in 1993.
The station is west of the original Baillieston [1st] station which closed in 1964.
Just east of the present station was Calderbank Colliery Signal Box where a short branch struck off to the south passing through a tunnel (Calderbank Colliery Tunnel) to serve Calderbank Colliery Pit No 1.
