Oldham Werneth

Not your regular railway/tramway sign. Approaching the site of Oldham Werneth station in February 2014 tram drivers were confronted by these road style chevron boards. Understandable I suppose as until the previous month they continued straight on through the tunnels but are now faced with a tight 90 degree turn onto the new town centre line. Viewed from behind the driver of a Rochdale bound tram, See image 44091 for the same location in 2013. By August 2014 the tracks and catenary through the tunnels had been removed, probably for use elsewhere as Metrolink is extended.
