Glasgow 1055, ex Liverpool Green Goddess 869, stands outside Newlands depot on the occasion of the LUPTS tour of the Glasgow system on 21 February 1960.   At the time, LUPTS was negotiating to buy the tram but, in the event, it was the successor society, the Merseyside Tramway Preservation Society, which bought the tram some months later.   Photo copyright: Peter Stoddart
The 'Mersey Docks Railtour' is believed to have been the only steam hauled rail tour ever to take place within the Liverpool Dock system.   MDHB Avonside 0-6-0ST No 1 is seen at the head of its rake of open wagons propelling onto the Canada Dock branch on 8 May 1965.   LUPTS was recently reacquainted with the loco.   Now preserved, and having been on display for many years at Liverpool Museum, it currently resides in the museum reserve, visited by a LUPTS party during the 2002 bus tour weekend.   Photo copyright: John Ryan

Over the years, LUPTS undertook a number of trips to the railway of the White Moss Peat Company in Kirkby.   A feel for the precarious nature of such a trip can be gleaned from this 30 April 1975 Wednesday afternoon visit.   Photo copyright: Tom Kane
