This was a two platform station in a deep cutting. The road level building still stands, looked won on by the surrounding tenements built after the station.
The original station was largely to the west of Bonnington Road. Two curves stairways ran down from the road above to the platforms from the west side of the road. The station building was on the Edinburgh bound platform.
The Ordnance Survey Name Book described it thus
A small wooden shed and stone platform, on the Leith Branch of the Edinburgh, Perth & Dundee Railway where passengers are booked &c.
