I got a man Vic - Rochdale tram - just for the experience Not very comfortable, lots of stops (Think they put in a few when they converted it from heavy rail) and the journey through Oldham seemed to take yonks. Bit the tram was busy, lots standing. But not sure how many went that far. Of course, I should have used a Northern train to Rochdale but I wanted a tram ride. 1. Do you think trams should take over from heavy rail? Do you think there are circumstances where trams are not acceptable? 2. is there a limit mileage/time wise where a tram is acceptable? 3. is it right places like Oldham and Bury have lost their heavy rail service.
