Lines

Shimo-Shirataki Station was served by the single-track Sekihoku Main Line, lying 92.7 km from the official starting point of the line at Shin-Asahikawa. The station was numbered "A47".

Station layout

The station had two side platforms serving two tracks on the otherwise single-track line. The station was unstaffed, but had a station structure and waiting room.

History

The station opened on 12 August 1929. With the privatization of Japanese National Railways (JNR) on 1 April 1987, the station came under the control of JR Hokkaido.

In July 2015, JR Hokkaido announced that it would be closing the station along with three others on the line (Kyū-Shirataki Station, Kami-Shirataki Station, and Kanehana Station) in March 2016, due to low passenger usage.

The station closed following the last day of services on 25 March 2016.
