A manned station on the Gladstone-Wilmington Line until 1983 when all the station staff on the line were withdrawn. The town of Melrose is just over a mile south of the station.
Station and goods siding loops, with storage/shunting sidings.
The Gladstone-Wilmington Line is unsignalled. Train Order working is in operation on the line.
There were no passenger services after 1969. The line was closed in 1990 and the track has since been removed. The right-of-way from Melrose to Wilmington has been converted into a rail trail. The site of the former Melrose station and yard is now occupied by a large grain receiving facility.
