Preston Workshops and New Preston Depot

Preston Workshops at the corner of St George's Road and Miller Street it was once the main workshops for the M&MTB, but following privatisation in the 1990s it became a dumping ground for W class trams. In 2016 it was reborn as 'New Preston Depot' - a running depot for the new E class fleet, replacing East Preston depot to supply trams for route 11 and 86.
