Demolition of the post office building is complete and the digging out of the new tracks is under way.
The Virgin buildings which also occupy the location of the new platforms have been vacated and are now also surrounded by hoardings ready for demolition. Virgin, meanwhile, have a new office on the concourse.

This is a Plasser & Theurer 08-16-SP tamper, I'm told. How it reached this totally isolated piece of railway I don't know.
