My first posting on this subject is available via the link below:-
It concentrated on the ‘Whiston’ colliery loco now based at the Foxfield Railway in deepest rural Staffordshire and the long-term refurbishment project of the former Merseyrail Class 502 EMU in a warehouse in Burscough.
This posting is about an historic locomotive and a LOR motorcoach both of which are in the care of NML (National Museums Liverpool) and on display in the new Museum of Liverpool.
The first is the world famous Lion, pictured above. It probably became so well known because it was the star of the Ealing Comedy film The Titfield Thunderbolt. At one time it was also displayed on a plinth at Lime Street Station.
This is what NML says about the Lion – follow link below:-
The second one in this posting is the Liverpool Overhead Railway motorcoach No.3 that is displayed on a replica piece of overhead track also in the Museum of Liverpool. See photos above.
