Description

This was a two platform station with a bay platform for the Lauder Light Railway.

The nearest station to the north was Heriot (north) and to the south is Stow.

The Gala Water was relocated after opening of the railway to run down the east side of the station, thus alleviating the need for the two bridges over the river.
