Opened on the Leven and East of Fife Railway.


Description

This station is closed. This was originally a single platform station with a loop. To the north of the loop was the passenger platform and to the south a loading bank, which was an island with a track down either side. To the south again was a siding, approached from the east.

The station was rebuilt around 1898 with a second platform, a westbound, in place of the loading bank. A new North British Railway style building was provided. The old building on the eastbound platform remained. A larger goods yard was laid out to The south, served from the east.

The station site is now housing. A former bridge over the line remains to the west.

The station was at the east end of the town with Elie House to the north.
