Tram services between Manchester and Oldham have returned - for the first time since trams stopped running in Oldham in 1946. The first service to Oldham Mumps left Manchester Victoria at 05:24 BST, calling at the eight stops on the line. The tram then made the return journey, leaving Oldham at 06:00 BST and taking about 25 minutes to reach Manchester city centre. The line is expected to be extended to reach Rochdale by the end of the year. Transport for Greater Manchester said tram services will run every 12 minutes and a six-minute service will be introduced as passenger numbers grow.
