Opened on the Edinburgh and Dalkeith Railway.
Note: text in square brackets is added for clarity and was not part of the location's name.
This was a two platform station.
Often re-instatement of a line sweeps away the remains of an old station, but the two platforms remain along with the original street level building. "and Dalkeith" was added to the name ten years after closure of the short Dalkeith branch terminus. To the north was the short lived Glenesk station.
A new station called Eskbank has been opened to the south on the site of Hardengreen Yard.
