Opened on the Edinburgh and Northern Railway.
This was a two platform station with a bay (the goods siding) on the northbound platform at the north end. Opposite this was a signal box. The north end was built over a road bridge. The box was to close in 1934 when the line was singled.
The line remains open, still single track.
