Manned station on the Port Pirie-Broken Hill Line .
Multiple loops and sidings including goods, grain and storage. Loco servicing facility.
After the conversion of the line to standard gauge (4ft8½in - 1435mm) in 1969-70 Jamestown became just a crossing loop with sidings and a new grain terminal. The goods and servicing facilities have been removed.
The station building is being reused as a local museum. There are no passenger services.
