A St Helens Shaw Street to Warrington Bank Quay service is seen arriving at Vulcan Halt in 1964. The train is formed of a class 108 Derby built two-car DMU. DMUs had been introduced onto the service in the early 1960s. A few passengers are seen waiting to board the train.

Vulcan Halt looking north in 1964 as an English Electric Type 4 locomotive passes through on a southbound train of tank wagons. Many of these locomotives were built at the works that can be seen to the right of the halt.

A view taken just to the south of Vulcan Halt in the mid-1960s. The Vulcan works locomotive had just positioned one of the factory's products, an AL6 electric locomotive (class 86), so that it could be taken to its new home on BR.
