Miles Platting railway station served the district of Miles Platting in Manchester from 1844 until closure on 27 May 1995.[1] It was situated at the junction of the lines to Stalybridge and Rochdale, and had platforms on both routes. Little trace remains of the station today, as the platforms were removed and the buildings demolished after closure. However, a length of platform awning has been re-erected at Ramsbottom station on the preserved East Lancs Railway.
