TWO steam locomotives will be travelling through Newton-le-Willows this afternoon.

The black 5 (45231) is expected to travel through the area at around 4.30pm today.

Meanwhile, the 60009 will be in the area around 30 minutes later and is set to travel through Earlestown and Newton-le-Willows stations shortly after 5pm.

While this specific black loco was not built at the Vulcan Works, the former Newton-based manufacturers did create many of the same type.

Both of the steam trains will be able to be viewed both from the Vulcan Village lay-by and Winwick Bridge.
