Description

This is a single platform station on the Borders Railway. The original station building remains standing. The platform occupies roughly the location of the original northbound platform.

Until reconstruction, the site of the station's goods yard was occupied by houses - this is now the station carpark.

The original station consisted of two slightly staggered platforms with a goods yard on the south side of the line, a loop from the northbound line.

The next station to the north is Newtongrange and to the south Stow. Formerly the next station south was Fushiebridge.
