Description

This was a single platform station south of the village of Newbigging. The platform was on the north (village) side of the single platform with a goods yard to the north, approached from the west. To the east of the station the line crossed over A721, the platform close to the bridge. The station building was small. To the north, at the road entry to the station yard, were two joined railway cottages.

The line closed to passengers in 1945 and completely in 1950.

Today the cottages remain and the trackbed can be walked in either direction. The road bridge has been removed.

Todholes Siding was about two miles to the east.
