Pendolino 390012 is stabled on an electrified siding outside Preston power box (built on the site of Preston steam shed) in between London trips. The line to Lancaster (going off to the right) was closed for weekend engineering so Virgin services turned back here. TPE 185142 leaves the Blackpool line to run into Preston station on its way to Manchester Airport. The ramshackle looking fence posts in the foreground have been replaced by a substantial fence a few feet further away from the line.
