Opened on the Caledonian Railway.
This was a two platform station to the north of Floriston Level Crossing. The railway remains open and is the West Coast Main Line.
The main station building was on the southbound platform and the goods yard, just a single siding, was south of the level crossing.
In 1918 the line south between Floriston and Rockliffe was quadrupled by opening two long loops on either side of the line.
The station was west of the farm of Floristonrigg. Early OS maps show the name Floristown for the station.
The station closed in 1950 and nothing remains. The line to the south is still quadruple track and to the north there are three lines, a loop on the east side running south from Mossband Junction to Kingmoor Marshalling Yard. This third line passes through the site of the southbound platform.
