Opened on the Edinburgh and Dalkeith Railway.

Description

The exact location of this short lived station is uncertain, being more a stopping place than a station. It was located on the original alignment of the Edinburgh and Dalkeith Railway probably to the north of the A6106 overbridge.

On opening of the Edinburgh and Hawick Railway (North British Railway) the line was realigned and Sheriffhall [2nd] opened.

Two bridges exist over the original and re-aligned trackbeds here.
