22 May 12   A walk into Manchester via Newton Heath, then to Salford Quays.  Sunny.


Testing has begun on the new Metrolink tram route to Oldham.  I caught one stopped on the 'finback' bridge,
where the tram route goes over the heavy rail line to Rochdale and Yorkshire.  Speculation is that the Metrolink
line will open to Oldham on the 11th June.  The extension to Rochdale is due to open later this year.

These have appeared since my last visit (or more likely I didn't notice them).
