Opened on the Leven Extension Railway (Wemyss and Buckhaven Railway).
This was a single platform terminus station. The station building still exists, in use as an office for a road haulage depot.
The passenger line was on the north side of the building and single platform, with no rounding loop - which is probably why use of a railcar was made. Trains ran west to Thornton Junction.
To the south goods lines bypassed the station on the approach to Methil Docks. There was a considerable yard to the north of these, approached from the east and another to the south of these, approached from the west - this yard serving both Methil Dock No 2 and the Wellesley Colliery.
The goods lines survived the station closure.
