This was a two platform station with the platforms passing under Carberry Road. The main station building was on the eastbound platform with a waiting room on the westbound. The signal box was at the west end of the westbound platform (it closed in 1924).
The station was about a mile south of Musselburgh itself. A more suitably sited station, Musselburgh [2nd], opened in 1847.
The goods yard was on the north side, approached by a long reversing spur leading off the eastbound platform. A long siding also existed on the south side, approached from Monktonhall Junction.
The line remains open but no trace of the station remains, except in the alignment of Carberry Grove, formerly the goods yard.
