As mentioned, you can likely get both rainbow trams in one pic at Firswood or Wythenshawe Town Centre today! Good luck!

I would like to express my gratitude for this thread by making my first (and probably my last) contribution to it. Good sailing, and may all regular users enjoy it!

There is another 'Get Me There' tram on Altrincham - Ethiad services - or at least it was at about 0700 this morning. Sorry didn't get the number but it was less than 3061

It doesn't matter about duplicates, add's some more to the forum and we all have different photography styles and photography equipment.

But great shots R02

Rainbow Tram's 3082 and 3084 are both on the Airport line today, full list of Airport line trams will be online shortly. I asked Metrolink if 3082 and 3084 were the old #RainbowTrams on the network, and they are, this means that there won't be a rainbow tram going to Altrincham, Bury or Rochdale (But will make it to Shaw and already has done)

Todays tram list for the APL in order that the are operating

Minor correction Mike. 3082 & 3084 can run to Rochdale as part of Tms line, it only Bury and Altrincham lines that rainbow trams wouldn't be seen on system.

I'm surprise Metrolink have only got two rainbow trams on system as (I think) like two years they had four/five trams part of gay parade theme with few below 3060.

I know it can run to Rochdale but they are both Trafford based trams, meaning they only do Shaw to East Didsbury
