In 1999, Crumpsall station on the former Bury railway line had been used by Metrolink trams for around seven years. The old station buildings remain, though doors and windows have been sealed off as the station is unmanned. The white structure on the right is the lift for disabled access, installed at every station when Metrolink opened in 1992. 

In 2005, nearly seven more years of tram use have passed. The station buildngs have gone and a new ramp has been added. The lifts were frequently out of use due to vandalism and maintenance problems. Another ramp is currently under construction on the northbound side.  A white picket fence discourages passengers from walking on the part of the platform no longer in use. The lift tower is still there.
