13:30 Trip to Manchester to take advantage of the Airport station engineering works and travel between Heald Green North & South Junctions. Mission accomplished came here for lunch. Fairly busy as you would expect at a City Centre lunchtime. Ground floor toilets are a notable exception to the usual Wetherspoon's facilities.
