A major manned station, junction and a break-of-gauge location on the narrow gauge  Port Pirie-Broken Hill Line  and  Gladstone-Wilmington Line , and the broad gauge  Gladstone-Hamley Bridge-Adelaide Line .

Multiple loops, yards and sidings for goods, grain, livestock, station, transfer platforms and loco servicing facilities. Many of the tracks were dual gauge and, much later, triple gauge. For simplicity only a few "token" dual-gauge tracks are shown in this layout.

Port Pirie is 32km (20mi) directly North West of Gladstone or 51km (31.5mi) by rail.

The Port Pirie-Broken Hill Line was converted to standard gauge during 1969-1970 and Gladstone then became a triple gauge location until the closure of the narrow and broad gauge lines by 1990.

At its peak, before standardisation, Gladstone employed over 1,000 workers in servicing locomotives and the break-of-gauge facilities.

Gladstone is now just a passing loop and a grain terminal. The loco servicing facilities have been removed. The station building still stands but is no longer in use and is slowly decaying. Passenger services no longer stop at Gladstone.
