Three-wheeled ScammellThree-wheeled Scammell Mark II 6 ton "Mechanical Horse" Tractor Unit. Built in 1946, painted in London & North Eastern Railway Blue livery.

Built in the 1930's these vehicles were frequently used as railway parcel delivery service. They were able to pick up and drop off trailers quickly, using an automatic coupling from inside the cab.

In July 2002 Greater Manchester Police issued a speeding ticket to the Museum. The prosecution notice was for the three-wheeled Scammell which the Police said had been caught on camera speeding at 44mph in a 30mph zone along Bury Road, Bolton. The Trust was able to prove that at the time of the offence, the vehicle was undergoing restoration and was not capable of the claimed speed, 18mph with a light load is more appropriate. The police examined their photo and discovered it was the numberplate from a Belgium car.
