Road/rail excavator at Manchester Airport on 11th May 2008

A road-rail excavator was being used to remove track on the short 2km spur at Manchester Airport on 11th May 2008. Originally constructed in 1997, the spur was used to deliver stone for use in the construction of the second runway. The lines from Manchester Airport station to Heald Green run from left to right in a cutting behind the red and white building.
