This beats the docks. Birkenhead's Class 03 shunter 03189 performs shuttle duties with a Derby DMU, from the station to the shed, at a Steamport Southport Open Day. As it runs past the former excursion platforms the coal depot sidings, still open at this time, can also be seen. The shunter remained in BR service until 1986, has since been preserved and can be seen at the Ribble Steam Railway in Preston.
