The line is double track between Poppleton and Skelton Junction in York. Westwards of Poppleton station the line is single track as far as Hammerton.
The station still has a nursery (horticultural) which used to supply plants across the stations in Yorkshire pre-privatisation. A two-foot gauge railway still operates around the nursery.
The main buildings here are now privately occupied and the station is unmanned. The lack of ticket machines means that tickets need to purchased either on the train or in advance. There are shelters and digital information screens on each platform. Step-free access is available to both platforms, which are linked by the manually-operated level crossing, which still (as of 2017) retains its wooden gates and ground-level signal box.
