Vulcan Foundry/loco works was at Newton-le-Willows (I think). Presume they headed for the East Lancs Rd. (Newly opened), Scotty Rd. Into the tunnel. Leave via the Dock Branch (tight fit maybe), then head towards whatever dock the ship was leaving from ?
The trailer that the engine is on in the top picture was owned by Edward Box and made by Scammell. It was later owned by Marston Road services and perhaps then to Picford's. There is one in the Leyland museum.
