Newhey Tram Station
Newhey Tram Station
Metrolink Bombardier M500o tram number 3009 stands at Newhey station, on its journey towards Rochdale.

Newhey Railway Station was opened in 1863 by the Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway (later taken over by the London & North Western and then London Midland and Scottish Railways in 1922 and 1923 respectively). The station was closed in 2009 in preparation for the new Metrolink Tramway. Most of the old station was demolished and has since been replaced by the shiny new Metrolink stop/station seen here.

The stop has two side platforms to the south–east of Huddersfield Road from where this photograph is taken. The outbound (Rochdale) platform ramped path has a folded back route, with some steps shortening it.
