Description

This was a two platform station with a loop. The River Dee was to the west and village of Crossmichael to the east. The main station building was on the south bound platform. The platforms were at the south end of the loop.

The goods yard was accessed via a reversing spur accessed from the southbound platform. The yard had a pair of sidings.

The signal box, dating from 1891, was at the north end of the northbound platform, opposite the goods yard turn out and half way along the loop.

The station, loop, box and line closed in 1965.

The platforms, station building (in use as a house) and signal box still stand.
