Bury tram stop is on the former Manchester–Bury railway line. The railway originally ran through Bury Bolton Street station (now home to the East Lancashire Railway) to Ramsbottom and Rawtenstall, but in 1980 a short diversion was opened, partly utilising a curve to the Heywood line, running into a new terminal station at Bury Interchange. This is the present location of the Metrolink stop, and access is via the bus station above the platforms.
The line towards Bury Bolton Street was the site of the electric car sheds for the Bury line trains, but is now also occupied by the East Lancashire Railway. This steam line has also been extended over the tramway alignment by way of a new bridge, which connects with the railway line towards Heywood and Chadderton.
