Description

This was a two platform station with a goods yard on the south side of the line at the west end of the station, approached from a loop of the westbound line. The signal box was at the west end of the eastbound platform with the footbridge just to the east. It closed in 1977, replaced by the Edinburgh Signalling Centre.

A station building remains in use as a house, on the south side of the line. The station building is unusual in that some of it predates the railway.

The line is still crossed by a footbridge.
