Description

This was a two platform station with a passing loop on a single track line. This station was in the south of Currie, unlike Currie [1st] which it replaced, some way to the north. There was a goods yard to the south, served from the west. There was a water tank at the west end and signal box. Each platform had waiting rooms.

Platforms were cut back after closure to passengers and the goods yard remained open. Even after closure of the line it handled coal traffic.

The goods shed has survived. Railway cottages nearby survive.
