Description

This was originally a two platform station. the platforms were on the Caledonian Railway^s Greenhill Branch line from Garnqueen South Junction to Greenhill Lower Junction.

After the opening of the Bonnybridge Junction Yard and Bonnybridge Canal Branch (Caledonian Railway) (1886) it became a three platform station, a new platform face opening on the north side of the station making the northbound platform into an island.

The main station building was on the north platform, heavily canopied. A smaller building was on the southbound.

The connection to Upper Greenhill ran down the south side of the station, but was not served by a platform. There were no platforms on the Scottish Central Railway.

The Bonnybridge branch closed to passengers as long ago as 1933, but the station remained open until 1966.

Several variants of the name existed, including Lower Greenhill, in timetables of various companies.
