Jump start on a Manchester tram

Listen to this article

Using foreign made trams presents unique challenges to drivers and passengers in Manchester.

When the back door of a tram in Manchester stuck open, the driver urged all passengers to congregate on one side of the vehicle.

Moving weight away from the doors might help them slide shut and trams will not move whilst the doors are open.

Nothing happened and so the driver then asked passengers to jump up and down.

Undaunted intrepid Mancunians rose to the challenge with customary aplomb.

Tram chiefs praised the driver for using his initiative and getting the Altrincham service moving. The tram was built in Italy 20 years ago by Ansaldo.
