Description

This was a short lived station. It was located to the south of Seton House and Seton Chapel.

Tramways ran south from Seton. One, to the west, to Seton Engine Pit, Ascension Colliery and Garnet Pit and the other to Seton Colliery, Union Colliery and a colliery at Brierbush Cottage, just west of Macmerry.

There was a level crossing here. The location was upgraded to become a signal box in 1924. It was reduced to a gate box again in 1958, when St Germains Level Crossing's, to the east, was upgraded to be a signal box.

The level crossing was stopped up in 1978.
