This was a single platform minor station. The timber platform was on the north side of the line. There was a waiting shelter at the west end of the platform and also at the west end the signal for the line to Port Edgar and the goods yard, formerly the terminus of the line, South Queensferry [1st]. There was a siding to the east. This station replaced the terminus. It closed with the opening of the Forth Bridge Railway and Forth Bridge [Station] and later re-opened.

The site is now a footpath/cyclepath with nothing of the station to be seen.
