Here are links to two photos of the "station" at Aareschlucht Ost. The station is actually inside a tunnel, and you have to wait outside until the train arrives!
The first photo is what you will see when there is no train at the station. You wait in front of the door, and press the "Halt auf Verlangen" ("Stop on request") button on the left-hand wall. There is one button for trains heading in the direction of Meiringen, and another for trains heading towards Innertkirchen.
When the train arrives, the tunnel door will open, and you can board the train! The second photo shows a train stopped at the station, with the tunnel and train doors open so people can alight or board.

One thing to be aware of is that the track from the east entrance/exit of the Aareschlucht/Aare Gorge down to the Aareschlucht Ost station is narrow, steep and rough underfoot. If you have solid footwear and your ankles and knees are in good condition, it won't be a problem, but with unsuitable shoes or knee/ankle problems, you might prefer to avoid it and return through the gorge to exit at the west entrance.
I have also attached a photo of a "Halt auf Verlangen" button on a train. They vary a bit from train to train, and are sometimes on a wall, but this will give you an idea of what to look for. (This one was on a train from Grindelwald to Kleine Scheidegg.)
