Metrolink Tram passing Droylsden Library
Metrolink Bombardier M5000 tram number 3024 passes Droylsden Library on its journey to Manchester. Although the line from Piccadilly to Droylsden wasn't officially opened until 11th February, this tram was operating as part of a free service as a "thank-you" to residents living next to the route (LinkExternal link Manchester Confidential).

The new Droylsden Tram stop on Ashton Road will operate as the temporary terminus for the Metrolink East Manchester Line Extension which will eventually run to Ashton-Under-Lyne.
