Swinton sign

Like most other stations on the same line, Swinton follows the same layout of having a central island platform accessed by steps from a road bridge. Unlike some, it hadn't acquired a lift for accessibility, but unlike others, it still has its overall canopy. The front of the station building on Station Road:
