Opened on the Arbroath and Forfar Railway.
This was a two platform station with staggered platforms. A mineral line ran from the north end of the station to the west to serve Leysmill Quarry.
The northbound platform was slightly south of the southbound platform, the platforms separated by a level crossing. There was a footbridge. Goods facilities were at the north end. The signal box was on the northbound platform alongside the level crossing.
The line was singled in 1936, with only one platform remaining in use, before closure. The northbound line was retained until closure.
The station closed to passengers in 1955 and the line ceased to be a through line to St Vigeans Junction with the closure of the line south of Letham Mill Siding. The railway closed altogether in 1965.
A station building remains, in use as a house.
