Opened on the Caledonian Railway.
This was a two platform station with the main station building on the southbound platform. There was a goods yard on the east side of the line, approached by a long siding from the southbound line. The box was on the west side opposite the goods yard and south of the northbound platform.
In 1918 the line northward from the station to Floriston was quadrupled, a loop was laid on either side of the line. The box was replaced.
With the opening of Kingmoor Marshalling Yard approach lines were laid to the west of the station, the southbound line flying over the existing railway. These lines joined the existing loops north of the station.
The box closed in 1963 with the opening of the yard, replaced by Kingmoor Power Box.
The line is no longer quadruple directly north of the station and has reverted to double track. The northern approaches to Kingmoor, to the west, remain in use.
The station building is now a house.
