It is inconveniently located several kilometres away from both Kellsthorpe and Rolf's Castle. In the Railway Series it appeared briefly in Gordon the High-Speed Engine and in the television series, it first appeared in the eighth season and became a regular location until the CGI switchover. It returned in CGI in the seventeenth season. In the eighteenth season the track layout slightly changed and a diesel refuelling station was added.
The station has two buildings and three platforms, each connected by a footbridge.
James's bootlace incident happened a mile east of the station, and Edward catches a runaway James west of the station. Donald and Douglas rescued Henry from a snowdrift also west of the station and Henry started his "super-rescue" at a signalbox and level crossing here.
