The first station building was provided in 1878, and for many years, the station had two goods sheds, one each side of the line, along with lengthy platforms for timber traffic. In 1909, these were removed, and a cool store erected.
The present station building dates to 1960, when the station was rebuilt, to accommodate the standard gauge line. For the same reason, the goods shed, crane and livestock race were relocated to the west side of the main line. The majority of goods sidings have since been removed, along with a number of points leading into the sidings.
Broadford Loop opened on the parallel standard gauge line in 1962, along with the line.
