Nos. 39-40 ex-Ramsbottom UDC (Nos. 9-10, new 1923 and 1924 respectively); re-numbered 45-46 respectively (in 1927?). There are varying reports about these vehicles from a number of sources. Rawtenstall Corporation records show them to have been purchased in 9/24 and taken out of service in 1927 for rebuilding. It is possible that TC780 (Ramsbottom UDC No. 8 – another Thornycroft J, which was withdrawn by Ramsbottom in 1927) was used, possibly for spares, during this period as this vehicle is also mentioned by some sources as being in Rawtenstall at this time. TC4907 is reported to have been returned to service bearing fleet number 46. The fate of TC5979 is unclear. The PSV Circle quote from a fleet list dated October 1928 that describes No. 45 as TC780 OR TC5979, which seems to suggest that TC870 was at Rawtenstall, but also suggests that whichever vehicle was to bear the fleet number 45 was not then operational. It is known that one vehicle was in a partially dismantled state when sold and it remains a possibility that rebuilding was not completed and that the vehicle never re-entered service.
