Answer

Vol. 8A of the "Green Guide" states that the Trafford Park engines were normally employed at the ex GNR Deansgate Goods Depot and worked trip freights to Trafford Park sidings. Other duties included Manchester Central Goods Pilot and occasionally substituting for an N5 at Trafford Park sidings. There is no mention of their use at Northwich. (CC:10911)
