This is a two platform station served by local trains from Edinburgh Waverley to North Berwick. There is a small car park.
This is a very good example of a small North British Railway station. The original single storey stone built station building stands on the eastbound platform and a timber waiting shelter on both platforms. (Apparently accidentally demolished by a contractor and rebuilt.)
The goods shed was at the east end, north side of the line. Of this a single siding survives for Permanent Way use.
Immediately to the east are loops on either side of the line and Drem Junction where trains leave the East Coast Main Line to join the North Berwick Branch (North British Railway).
