Note the spelling Cairnie as per the nearby farm and cottages. This station was probably located either at Cairnie Cottage or near Adamsrow, a location now lost after the development of the Millerhill Marshalling Yard (British Railways).
The station did not survive the conversion of the Edinburgh and Dalkeith Railway into a properly railway with the opening of the Edinburgh and Hawick Railway (North British Railway) and various deviations and improvements to the original line.
This station may not have had any facilities at all and was most likely a stopping location, more akin to a halt than a station.
