      The Overhead railway would have been above the train in the 1940's! So would date after 1958 when the structure had been removed.

      The locomotive is a Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Co "Pug" - a small tank engine used for shunting dock areas. They were allocated to Bank Hall shed and were withdrawn in about 1962. Low speed and flagman were dictated by MDHB byelaws.
