The fifth station on the line from Dumfries.
The siding was worked by down trains only, goods for Dumfries being taken to the nearest station along. The points were unlocked with an Annett's key that was kept in a locked box on a post adjacent to the point
Trains were controlled by a 'lock and block' system whereby the trains operated treadles on the single line to interact with the block instruments.
Below is a picture of the station house as it was in early 2017. A few more pictures are at the bottom for this page including one showing tracks in the road at the old level crossing
