Annan was the last station of the day's exploring. Although the line was singled east towards Gretna Green in the 1970s it was redoubled in 2008 and both platforms are currently in use.

The approach to the station building. The station building itself is a restaurant and taxi office, with the archway on the right leading to platform 1:
