Description

This was a three platform through station, originally covered with a large timber overall roof which was later replaced with platform canopies.

Little remains of the station today and the new Galashiels is located further north. The new line is re-aligned to the extreme north/east side of the original station.

To the south were Galashiels Goods to the south/west side of the line and Galashiels Shed to the north/east side.

Trains from Galashiels also served Peebles and Selkirk.
