Dean Lane railway station opened on 17 May 1880 and served Newton Heath, Manchester, England. The station was on the Oldham Loop Line 2 1⁄2 miles (4.0 km) north east of Manchester Victoria and was operated and managed by Northern. 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 conversion to Metrolink on 3 October 2009 and re-opened as Newton Heath and Moston Metrolink station on 13 June 2012, using only the former Manchester-bound platform. The track has been singled through the station, allowing Network Rail to use the other line to access the Greater Manchester Waste Disposal facility.
