Description

This is a two platform station. The main station building is on the northbound platform.

The goods yard was on the west side of the line, approached from the north by reversal. The signal box was located at the north end of the station. A long siding led from the goods yard through a tunnel and on to a reversing spur. From here the branch (Binnend Oilworks Railway) ran north and then west to Burntisland Oil Works.

The signal box closed in 1967.

The station building has been converted Artline Kinghorn with an art studio on the upper floor and gallery on the ground floor.
