This single platform station was at Cardrona Mains, just east of Horsburgh Viaduct and about a mile north of Cardrona House and Cardrona Viaduct. The former station is now within the modern Cardrona housing estate development.
The platform was on the south (road) side of the single line. There was a single storey building on the platform and a small signal box, typical of the line, at the east end (the only remaining box on the Peebles-Galashiels section).
There was a goods yard at the west end of the station, south of the line and approached from the west.
To the north Cardrona Ford crossed the River Tweed to reach Horsburgh.
After closure the station remained intact but increasingly ruinous until around 1997 when the Cardrona development began. The station building had remained largely intact with ticket window, ticket office and railway furniture largely in place. The signal box remained standing, with the site of the lever frame still clear. A plate layers hut remained. The site was choked with undergrowth in summer.
The station was restored as part of the development. The trackbed became a car park and the main building has seen a variety of uses, largely as shops, post offices and cafes. Nashy's Coffee House
Cardrona proper, the original big house, is about a mile to the south.
