Ashton-under-Lyne station is the only station on the line between Stalybridge and Manchester Victoria, and has almost all of its buildings above ground level. Here's the front of the station building just to the south of the line:

The subway entrance is the only access to the station:

At the far end of the subway is a ramp to platform level and a lift:

Looking up the ramp:

The ramp and lift lead up on to platform 1, just by the digit:

A section of new canopy shelters the route to the lift at platform level:

Looking west along the line from the end of platform 1. A road passes under both tracks:

On the other side is platform 2, from where we look west. It looks like there was once another track on the right:

On platform 2, looking west with the new building which covers the ramp on the right:

Opposite the eastern end of platform 2 is this cut-out where the railway land (former sidings?) gives way to a car park:

At the eastern end of platform 2 is a length of disused platform with bonus overgrowth:
