Opened on the Galashiels, Innerleithen and Peebles Railway (North British Railway).


Description

This was a single platform station to the south of Thornylee Farm. The platform was on the north (farm) side of the line with a goods yard to the east on the north side of the line, approached from the west.

The single storey station building was stone. There was a loop on the goods yard siding, rather a long siding. A cottage was built to the north of this siding around 1900.

The station building still stands, in use as a house. Road realignment to the east (the road used to pass under the line) has removed much of the siding site.

The original name was Thornilee but the date of the change is unclear, probably 1872.
