Tower Buildings, belonging to the Co-op, they should never have been allowed to knock it down.

The only reason I can see for this train to be running down a public highway is that it maybe heading for the Prestwich Mental Hospital, which is further along this road to the left. Some of these establishments were rail saved in years gone by but was this one? There is no reference to such a set up on their website and the two photographs on this website are not clear enough. I would welcome any comments.

It appears to be a road train pulled by a traction engine. Carrying freight on tram tracks would lead to disruption of passenger services and probably overload the track. There was no tram line into Prestwich Hospital

Hi To me it looks like a steam traction engine pulling three trailers, as there is no where for a train to get to ground level.
