Opened on the New Monkland Line (Monkland Railways).
Open on the Edinburgh to Glasgow via Bathgate and Airdrie.
This is a two platform station.
The station was re-opened on the same site as the original station, closed in 1956. The platforms survived the closure and the period from 1981 to 2010 during which the line was closed. In the intervening years houses had been built to the south side which were compulsory purchased and demolished to provide a carpark site. The new platforms are on the site of the originals.
The original station had a goods yard on the south side, west end of the station, served from the west.
To the west was a short branch serving Caldercruix Mill, on the south side of the line, and to the east a substantial branch ran north to the Longriggend area.
The line east was initially single track, doubled around 1900, to Forrestfield which was a passing loop.
The next station west was Plains, and to the east Forrestfield. Today the next station west is Drumgelloch, and to the east Blackridge.
