6 Mar 12   Walked to Ashton for a look at the latest Metrolink progress, then jumped on a train to Greenfield.
I'd intended to walk back along the canal to Stalybridge but it clouded over later and was getting on a bit
so I cut it short at Mossley.

Preparations for stringing the overhead lines over the next few nights.

This gap still hasn't been joined yet though.  At the Cemetery Road stop.

The second phase of the Droylsden Centre re-vamp is well under way.

The raised turn-back track just east of the Droylsden stop.

It was being cleaned with a fairly hefty vacuum cleaner.

Further east towards Audenshaw, nearly ready for the tarmac.

Thermite welding of the rail joint.

Tracks now laid at the Audenshaw stop, looking towards Ashton.

Lord Sheldon Way, Ashton.  Re-bar on the M60 bridge.

Work is not so far advanced near Ashton town centre though.

Greenfield Station, Saddleworth.

Frenches Marina, Greenfield.
