Description

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

There is a loop on the eastern side of the station, passing the platforms, which may be used by up (southbound) passenger trains. There is an equivalent loop to the south of the station on the down (northbound) line. Both loops have sidings to the south of the station, those on the up line being accessed from the south and that on the down line accessible from the north.

The original station had two platforms and two tracks. There were sidings to the north and south of the platforms and a goods yard to the south of the station on the west side of the line accessed from the south.

Around the time of the opening of the Dumfries, Lochmaben and Lockerbie Railway in 1863 the station was greatly expanded. A trainshed was added to the north of the main station building which covered bay platforms for the branch line. A locomotive shed, Lockerbie Shed, was added to the east side of the station and the up loop line.

The trainshed survived the closure of the branch in 1966 but was to be demolished in 1972.
