Name and dates

Opened on the Ardrossan and Johnstone Railway.

Open on the Kilwinning, Ardrossan and Largs.


Description

This is a two platform station. The original station buildings have not survived. The building on the up platform, dating from 1900, was of a style still represented by West Kilbride, although slightly different.

There was a goods yard on the north side of the station, approached from the east.

To the west of the station is a level crossing, on the south side of the line was Stevenston No 2 Signal Box. With the resignalling in advance of electrification it became first a gate box, in 1986, and then closed when replaced by the Paisley Signalling Centre.
