In Pictures: Double M5000s run for Manchester City match

Last Sunday (17th February) saw an enhanced service operate on the East Manchester Line for the first Manchester City match to take place at the Etihad Stadium since the line opened. This service included double M5000s in use – their first significant use since the Olympic football took place at Old Trafford last year. The general consensus of opinion seems to be that operations seemed to work fairly well on match day with the crowds after the match being dispersed quite easily.
