Description

This was a two platform station to the south of sidings which served nearby collieries. It was a very plain station, just two platforms with a footbridge between the platforms. Access to the station was by a footpath which crossed over the mineral line to the Plean collieries by means of a footbridge. The footpath ran to the nearby road.

To the north was Plean Junction and its very tall signal box.

Nothing remains of the station today. The box at Plean Junction closed in 2008.
