The station buildings were situated on the northwest side of Dean Lane, where that road passed over the LYR line from Manchester Victoria to Rochdale, and 300 yards north of Dean Lane. It was immediately adjacent to the large LYR Newton Heath steam locomotive shed. The Railway Hotel remains in operation at the former station site.
The area is now served by Newton Heath and Moston tram stop, which opened on 28 February 2013.
