A Juvenile Liaison Officer in Liverpool tries to solve fire-raising incidents

This crime drama was filmed on location in Liverpool and there is one scene on the now vanished Liverpool Central station, with coaching stock visible, and a scene filmed beneath the Liverpool Overhead Railway with one of the Mersey Docks & Harbour Board 0-4-0ST’s moving slowly past with some wagons.

Thankfully we see the sign above the doorway here. Liverpool Central station, which just about clung to life until final closure in 1972.
Whilst inside the station there is plenty going on, with a rake of carriages visible beyond the barriers

Looking the other way a van arrives on the scene and another steam loco is just visible amongst the shadows on the right. This sequence of events was filmed just to the north of Canada dock station, the steps up to which can be made out in the darkness right of centre.
David McCallum now beneath the ‘Ovee’ and the steam loco has drawn closer. It looks like a Peckett 0-4-0 saddle tank. In true ‘gangster’ fashion, that is not a guitar in the case but a gun!
