Isn't it the same track, gated entry onto Liverpool Road at its Southern end? Continued as 'backs' to Town Hall and other buildings on Bryn Street. Then past where the Post Office used to be, then bridge over the brook, to emerge upon Old Road adjacent to the Police Station at its Northern end.

Although I recall the name, I do not remember an actual steam engine.

Would love to know more about it if anyone does. Precisely where, what was it used for, what type of steam engine etc etc?
