Seaboard Coast Line GP16 #4706, and three brand new SCL GP38-2's (6047, 6048 & 6049), heading for the old shop track          
All of the tracks in the foreground were eventually torn out as Manchester's flat switching duties diminished and Rice Yard in Waycross steadily ramped up its operations. In 2009, there is 1 one run-around track for Birmingham bound trains where this power is, and the Manchester railfan platform is just over the top of 4706
