Hardly. The old trams aren't cleared to run on this route so reliability will be far better than the image you have in your mind. In fact, the old trams will never be aloud to run on this route because of objections raised by Train Operating Company northern rail. This is due to the new line running next to their depot and the old trams would inter fear with the depot equipment but the new ones don't. Please, before you try to make a comment base it upon knowledge and solid facts as opposed to an image of metrolink that is failures and broken down vehicles.
