After "blowing-up" the pictures, I agree with Flagger and Cawlterrace that girder grooved tram-rail is clearly seen. I have seen tramtrack lifted from beneath road surface in worse state than that, cleaned up and reused for tram operation. So how about a "Rawtenstall effort" to regain the rail for use in extending the Heaton Park tramway upon which Rawtenstall 23 will run when restored to passenger service?

Re: Crawshawbooth-Possible Old Tram Line

I don't think the tramlines were ever removed from much of Burnley Road - just covered by more and more asphalt.

You are right there they have been exposed when roadworks have been done.
