The city centre section of Metrolink is closed and it looks as though all of the track is to be replaced. At present trams are terminating at St Peter's Square and Victoria. I am told that the work will be planned so that one track will remain open for cars to be transferred to and from the depot at night.
1. St Peters Square temporary terminus with two coupled cars for Altrincham.
2. Manchester United supporters being sold tickets by a temporary conductor with an Almex 'Model A' ticket machine.
3. The old track has been removed and new track is ready for installation.
4. The Oldham Loop will be closed for conversion to Metrolink in October. A Leyland National based railbus at Shaw - note the semaphore signal at the far end.
