West Midlands Metro

In operation for over 20 years, the West Midlands Metro is a public tram network that runs south-east from Wolverhampton to Birmingham for 13 miles. It broadly follows the corridor of the national rail route from Wolverhampton to Birmingham Snow Hill. RCF Bolt and Nut supplied fixings for the first phase in the metro line construction, enabling the Metro line to open in 1999 and see the return of trams to the Birmingham area for the first time since 1953.
