Description

This is a two platform station. The main station building, a modern structure, is on the up platform. The station features a lattice footbridge.

Goods facilities were at Cowdenbeath (Old) station, not far to the south on the original alignment.

The station was opened on the 1890 Cowdenbeath South Junction to Kelty South Junction shortcut which opened with the Forth Bridge Railway as one of the many improvements to the route between Edinburgh Waverley and Perth.

In 1919 a new link was installed between Cowdenbeath North Junction and Lumphinnans Central Junction. At the same time Cowdenbeath (Old) station closed.
