Railway Station

Today's view of the world of Ashton under Lyne shows Ashton under Lyne railway station. Some of you will be pleased to note that I haven't followed the trend of calling it the Train Station!

The train that has pulled up at the platform is heading for Manchester Victoria.

There were at one time three railway stations around Ashton's town centre. This station was originally known as Charlestown station, while the two that have closed now were Park Parade and Oldham Road stations. The station has two platforms on an island between teh tracks. The ramp leads down to the subway that leads out towards Wellington Road.

The building visible in the background is Tameside Council's administrative office block, which was also seen in the background of the photo that appeared here two weeks ago.

"Railway Station" is my contribution to this week's "My World" feature. Please check out the other blogs participating in this week's My World.


  1. A railway station with lovely clean lines! (Pardon the pun!) Like the large viewing windows on the train too!

  2. I found this composition really good.
    I went to school from these very platforms from 1966 to 1972.

  3. Beatifull photo I have some great memories on train platforms and some sad. Just visiting from "Our World Tuesday" and happy I did

  4. I like this station. I'm very fond of train travel and have almost convinced my husband it's the only way to fly.
