Description

This was a two platform station. The main building was by the westbound platform with a timber waiting room on the platform. The passenger station was west of an overbridge and to the east was the goods yard, which was on the north side and reached by reversal. The line is in a cutting.

A surviving railway cottage, which was by the station building, is now a house.
