The station was erected by the Forth Bridge Railway Company originally as a pair of ranges on opposite platforms. Only the East block now survives. Similar station buildings were re-built (by the North British Railway Company) at Inverkeithing. The station at North Queensferry forms part of the North Approach Railway and was built as part of the Forth Bridge (see separate listing) construction master plan. The North Approach Railway is just over 3km in length commencing from the abutment at the N end of the Forth Bridge and terminating at Inverkeithing at the former junction with the North British Railway. The N approach also includes the large viaduct at Jamestown (see separate listing). In the late 1980s, the remaining station building was closed and the platform window openings boarded up. It now operates as an unmanned station (2002).
