Farewell to the T68 Metrolink Trams

The iconic T68 Metrolink trams performed their last day in public service on Wednesday 30th of April 2014 (see photos attached to this page).


It is hoped that 2 examples of the trams will be preserved at the Heaton Park tramway.


There will be a farewell trip by a T68 on Bank Holiday Monday 26th of May, starting at Piccadilly Undercroft at 10.30. Cost is £20 (which is going to charity). The tour will cover the Altrincham, Eccles and Bury lines and will finish at 15.00.
