Description

This is a minimal single platform station. The platform is the former westbound platform, but when the Canal Line re-opened it was a single track and the eastbound line was not relaid.

The former main station building was on the eastbound platform. It was burned down after closure in 1983 and was then, fortunately, rebuilt for housing.

There was a goods yard to the south, served from the west. south of this was a large number of sidings.

To the east of the station is Crookston Loop.
