Gallery 334: Manchester Metrolink East Manchester Line Testing & Construction Update
Testing and driver training has recently resumed on the East Manchester Line between Piccadilly and Droylsden as preparations continue towards the opening of the line - which is still claimed to be in 2012 according to the official Metrolink website. This collection of photos from late November shows three M5000s being used for this purpose at various locations along the line and then concludes with a look on the section of the East Manchester Line between Droylsden and Ashton-under-Lyne - due to open in winter 2013/4 - where the OLE installation has recently been completed. To access the photos click on the relevant thumbnail and you can then either navigate from there or return to this page and click on your next one!

Photographs in this gallery were taken by Steve Hyde.
