Description

This was a two platform station to the north of a level crossing. There was a goods yard on the west side, north of the crossing, approached from the north.

A mineral line, of the Corncockle Quarry Co Ltd, ran north from the station's goods yard, on the west side, before striking off west to Corncockle Quarry.

The signal box was south of the level crossing, on the east side.

The station closed to passengers in 1960. The box closed in 1966.

The level crossing was stopped up for electrification of the line. Little remains of the station except a former railway cottage on the east side.

Nethercleugh farm is to the east of the former station.

The very large Lockerbie Sawmills have been developed at Steven's Croft since the station closed. This is directly to the west of the line but not rail served.
