Oldham Werneth

The trees on the right hide the 1842 formation of the 1:27 Werneth or Chadderton incline down to Middleton Junction, finally closed completely in 1963. 142011 has come up the easy way via the 1880 route at only 1:50 through Failsworth and Hollinwood on a stopping service for Shaw & Crompton. This view was taken in 2008 before conversion to Metrolink use. The trams negotiate the 30mph curve a little quieter than the Pacers!
