Manchester Trams

Staying overnight in Oldham, Greater Manchester I had the opportunity of riding the new tram system into Manchester

Since my last trip from Oldham into the city by rail, the route has now been converted and updated for use by Manchester Metrolink trams. It was a lot cleaner and a smoother ride with work at advanced stage to link Oldham central area to the system

Seen in the top photo is Flexity Swift Tram No 3045 arriving at Derker
station in Oldham in typical Manchester weather!

Waiting for a change of route at Market Street in the city centre, another example arrived outside the recently revamped Primark store. 3038 is seen in the lower picture taking on passengers prior to heading off to Bury

Overall I was impressed with the frequency of the services even though I only used them during the evening!
