Description

This was a single platform station to the south of the level crossing just outside Meigle.

The platform was later re-located to the north of the level crossing, probably in 1892 when a signal box and siding opened here. The former station became the goods yard to the new station. A siding was laid on the west side, which was approached from the north.

The line closed to passengers in 1951 and altogether in 1965.

The original station building, in stone, still stands on the south side of the former level crossing, on the east side of the former line. Railway fencing also survives.

The station was roughly half way between Meigle and Fullarton, closer to Meigle. Despite being closer to Meigle than Meigle [1st] it remained named Fullarton until 1876, two years after the Caledonian Railway came into ownership of both stations. Meigle [1st] became Alyth Junction.
