Description

This is a four platform station. Two platforms are through lines and two are bays served from the south east.

Formerly the Sighthill Branch bypassed the station on its south west side, those lines being lifted in the 1990s.

The relatively new Sighthill West Junction, for the Cowlairs Chord, is to the north west and Sighthill Junction is to the south east.

An oriignal street level building survives designed by James Carsewell.

There was a goods yard on the north east side, served from the south east.

Two locomotive works were nearby - Hyde Park Works [2nd] to the south west and Atlas Works [2nd] to the north east. Both are now closed.
