Preston

Trans Pennine Express double set from Manchester Airport on the final approach to Preston on 26 March 2009. The leading unit is bound for Edinburgh but the rear set will be split at Preston and follow the Edinburgh portion up the WCML as far as Oxenholme where it will branch off to Windermere. To the right of the train is the girder bridge over the River Ribble. This was added to the earlier stone arch bridge which itself was extended to serve the 5 tracks that are in regular use today.
