I think the engine looks to date from around 1938, but the trolley doesn't look like an original Lister factory item as the factory-produced handles were forged iron and had smooth curves rather than handles joined at an abrupt angle. The original trolley wheels were of a solid cast type rather than spoked. However, it's all part of the history of this engine, so I'd leave it as you found it. I'll look forward to seeing a video of it running once you've finished the restoration.
