The lines may have been promoted as a result of political pressure; for purely financial gain; to satisfy the ego of some local council; or even to suit the convenience of some local dignitary. However no mystery enshrouds the beginnings of the Manchester, Bury, Rochdale and Oldham steam tramway. It was conceived solely for the financial gain of its London backers; its beginnings were tortured by a maze of legal technicalities, each one designed further to line the pockets of its promoters; and its career was marked by a succession of court cases."
