    Problem with googling it is that Slag Reduction was a process that was carried out at every iron and steelworks, and does not necessarily reflect the activities of the company of that name, although there is a reference to the company in a news article; “received a gold wrist watch to mark his 30 years with the Barrow Slag Reduction Company, based at Walney Road.” but even that may not give the location where locos were scrapped.
