Try specifying transposition before relative.  The following (not quite
minimal) example works for me:

That's exactly what the 2.4.2 manual says: If you want to use both |\transpose| and |\relative|, you must put |\transpose| outside of |\relative|, since |\relative| will have no effect music that appears inside a |\transpose|.

Okay. Let's change it.

\version "2.4.0"
voiceTromboneI = \transposition bf \relative c' {
   bf2\ff bf | df df | c df | ef1 | bf2 bf | df df | c df | ef1 |

This (a) makes no difference to the notes, and (b) because I do

\score {
   \clef "bass"

just that one little change of moving the "transposition" completely screws the layout. So much so that "voiceTrombone" is printed in treble clef, and then the clef changes to bass for the rest of the stuff.

I'll have to play and try and work out some more clues as to what is going on - I notice that Graham did the equivalent of declaring "voiceTromboneBb", and then applying "transposition" to that - I'll have to try that ...
