3012 at Droylsden on 8th February 2013

M5000 tram No. 3012 approaches the Droylsden stop to form a Metrolink service to Piccadilly on 8th February 2013. The tram has just reversed on a short section of track rasied above street level which acts as a turnback for services returning to Manchester. This is the current limit for trams on the East Manchester Line, but in the distance the rails continue to the eventual terminus at Ashton-under-Lyne which is expected to open later in 2013.
