Description

This is a closed station, the name of which changed a number of times. The station was at Inchbare (to the immediate east) some way (1.5 miles) west of Stracathro. Dunlappie is 2 miles to the north west. Stracathro is the biggest settlement.

The station had a single platform, on the east side of the line. There was a loop and several sidings in the goods yard on the east side, approached from the south. To the north was a level crossing. There was a signal box and a gate box, both opened with the line. The signal box was on the west side half way along the loop. The gate box was by the crossing to the north.

A railway house was by the level crossing. The station buildings were to the south.

The loop was taken out before closure in 1921, with the loop line (on the west side) being turned into a siding approached from the south. The gate box remained open.

Much of the station site is now a garden. A number of houses occupy its site. The house by the level crossing still stands. This building is similar to others on the line.
