Dean Lane railway station opened on 17 May 1880[1] and served Newton Heath, Manchester, England. The station was on the Oldham Loop Line 2½ miles (4 km) north east of Manchester Victoria and was operated and managed by Northern Rail. There were once three stations in Newton Heath: Newton Heath, Dean Lane and Park. The station was 200 yards (180 m) away from the Newton Heath Train Maintenance Depot.

The station closed for the conversion to Metrolink on 3 October 2009 and will re-open as Newton Heath and Moston Metrolink station in Autumn 2011, using only the Manchester-bound platform. Through the station, the track will be singled, allowing Network Rail to use the other line to access the Greater Manchester Waste Disposal facility [2].

History

From about 1900 to his early death of pneumonia at the age of 44 in 1912, the Station Master was Henry Ainscough, living in the Station Master's house at 52 Dean Lane. (On his death, the family had to move, the cost of living in a tied accommodation).[citation needed]
