Name and dates

Rutherford (1851-1964)

Opened on the Kelso Branch (North British Railway).


Description

This was a two platform station until singling of the line. There was a siding for a loading bank on the south side, approached from the west and a second siding on the north side, approached from the east. Both sidings were east of the station. The platforms were staggered, the eastbound being offset a little west of the westbound.

After singling of the line - the westbound line was lifted - the westbound platform was extended out onto lifted line's tracked.

The loading bank and modified platform remain intact, the eastbound platform partly remains, built in timber.
