    The last trains ran out of the station on Saturday 3rd May 1969

    (Here two DMUs waiting to depart, with closure looming, only local services to Chester and Liverpool remained)

    The station had an extensive undercroft which was a former goods storage and trans-shipment area

    (A couple of older pics from previous visits)

    The rooftop also provides a unique view of the City from above

    It's a bit noisy to say the least this one, inside there appeared to be a number of people looking for us, on the way out I decided we go wave and say hello, naturally Jobs obliged :D

    "You've been up there haven't you?"

    Bigjobs:

    "No mate.. You can't get up there anyway can you" ;)

    Yeah, always have been able to. Been a few years since I've been down there, but it's still doable by all accounts

    Many thanks for posting this, I often go by this on the Metrolink and it is a fascinating place. It is has recently been renamed from GMEX to Manchester Central.

    I think it's still officially GMEX, but to many it will always be Central Station

    No, the name GMEX is no longer used, it is officially called Manchester Central.
    Home | Manchester Central
    And the Tram stop is now called Deansgate-Castlefield, not G-Mex.
