"The London-road Station forms the termini, and was erected for the joint use of the Manchester and Birmingham (now absorbed in the London and North-Western system) and the Manchester, Aston-under-Lyne, and Sheffield (now the Manchester, Sheffield, and Lincolnshire Railways), and was opened on the 4th of June, 1840, the first-named line being then complete as far as Stockport. The accommodation thus provided having become inadequate to the growing requirements of the public, a new station, on a much more extensive scale, was erected, which forms the subject of our illustration, and is now used jointly by the London and North-Western, the Great Western, the Cheshire Lines, the Manchester, Sheffield, and Lincolnshire, the Midland, and the Great Northern Companies."
