This was a two platform station with a passing loop. The main station building was on the westbound platform. There was a cottage in the station yard and a goods yard approached from the west. The signal box was at the west end of the eastbound platform. It opened with the line.
The station closed to passengers in 1952. The box was reduced to a ground frame in 1958 and replaced with an actual ground frame the following year. In 1964 the line east closed, the forrmer station becoming the goods terminus of the branch from Forfar South Junction. The line closed altogether in 1967.
The railway cottage survives.
