Oldham Werneth

The Oldham Loop rail line was mostly converted for use by Manchester Metrolink trams in January 2014, apart from the section through the town's stations although that was used by trams for a few months before the new town centre street section was opened. This view of the abandoned trackbed through the site of Werneth station, looking towards the tunnel, was taken from a Metrolink tram to Rochdale negotiating the sharp curve to the left that takes the trams onto reserved track before running 'on street' through Oldham town centre. They return to the former Loop line just beyond the replacement Oldham Mumps tram stop. Photograph taken on 22nd November 2014, 11 months after the new town centre tramway opened. See image 46375 taken from this spot ten months earlier.
