Description

This was a two platform station just north of the River Carron Viaduct. The main station building was on the southbound platform.

It had a goods yard to the south, on the east side, approached from the south. The signal box was on the east side of the line at the south end, where the yard sidings came off the southbound line.

The station was quite some way from Carronbridge, around two miles to the south.

The goods yard and passenger station closed in 1953. However the sidings remained until the early 1970s.

The station closed in 1953 and the box in 1983.

The station building remains, in use as a house. the platforms have been removed. Railway cottages remain and there is a new house on the site of the goods shed.
