Description

This was the fourth station to be opened in Bathgate and, when opened, the first in the town for twenty years following the closure of Bathgate Upper in 1956.

This was a single platform terminus. It opened with the re-opening of the Edinburgh and Bathgate Railway to passengers in 1986.

To the south was a goods yard, used for car deliveries until lifting in the 2000s.

The station was opened on the site of the Bathgate [1st] station. The original station was very slightly further west.

The station was replaced by Bathgate, a new through station just to the east.
