Workers were forced to resurface a car park around a stranded vehicle after its owner decided to move barriers to park there.
The area was blocked off by diggers at Edinburgh Waverley railway station, but when they turned up the next day, they found the Mercedes parked in the middle of the site.
Nonetheless, the workers got on with the job as planned and dug up the surface around the marooned blue car.
However, they also built a small ramp so the vehicle could be removed.
A Network Rail spokesman said: "Part of the car park had been cordoned off so we could begin resurfacing it and improve the lighting too.
"Whoever the driver was, he or she decided to move the barriers and park in the worksite anyway.
"We did the work but we left a ramp for them to exit and will be happy to return their vehicle if they contact us."
The scene was caught on camera by Twitter user Alice Robertson , who tweeted: "Not a good day to park in the Edinburgh Waverley car park."
The work is part of Network Rail's £100m refurbishment project of the station.
