SJ8293 : End of the line - for now

near to Withington, Manchester, Great Britain

End of the line - for now
End of the line - for now
The new Metrolink route to Chorlton / St Werburgh's Road opened in 2011. Track had been laid for a short distance beyond the St Werburgh's Road stop, and was in use as a headshunt. Work was well underway on the next two extensions to the network - a continuation of the South Manchester Line along the disused railway to Didsbury, and a line to Manchester Airport. The latter will leave the existing line just north of this point.

The photographers position is at the foot of Twenty-seven Steps - a flight of steps (not actually 27 of them) leading up to Mauldeth Road West adjacent to the railway bridge.
