On the disused stations website there a couple of old and rare photos of the former Ashton train station. Quite a lot of detailed info about said former station; no idea how these people find out such detailed history about these railways, especially precise opening and closing dates and when it was last used for passenger services. As far as I know, there are only two photos of this station that are on WW. Surprised the photo of the station master and staff hasnt been uploaded, if it has then I haven't seen it within the Ashton album.
I wonder how many will remember this station?. I had only heard about it through my dad, but he only has a vague recollection of it, together with Haydock Racecourse station.
