Opened on the Aberdour Line (North British Railway).
This is a two platform station which opened with the Aberdour Line approach to the Forth Bridge. The station replaced the Burntisland [1st] terminal which is adjoining to its immediate south.
The westbound platform building has a wooden canopy and there is an unusual style of stone waiting shelter on the eastbound platform, with a plaque.
