In Pictures: Rochdale line Metrolink testing

Further testing has been taking place this week on the Rochdale extension of the Oldham and Rochdale lines with M5000s being seen stabled at Milnrow stop between their overnight sessions. 3057 has been a regular performer on these tests and has been joined
by both 3053 and 3053 with trams noted in situ both at the end of October and this past week. It is currently planned that trams will make it to Rochdale Railway Station in service sometime in the early part of 2013, although no exact dates have yet been given and it is believed there will be a phased opening with the section to Shaw and Crompton being the first to open.
