This junction was east of Uphall and directly east of Camps Junction [NB] with which it shared the signal box (essentially it was the same junction but on the north side of the railway instead of the south). It provided access to the Hopetoun and Uphall Oilworks Railway.
The oil works line made a trailing connection to the eastbound Bathgate to Edinburgh line. There was a trailing crossover just to its west.
The oil works line had a headshunt alongside the main line and to the west an exchange yard (around six looped sidings) leading to a headshunt. From the headshunt the Uphall Oil Works was reached and, further north, a long countryside line reached Hopetoun Oil Works.
The M8 now cuts through the approach of the former branch to the main line. Uphall station^s northern car park is on the site of the exchange yard.
