    i recently went on holiday this year 2009 and called at wilton station on the west somerset railway when looking down the platform could see a green tender standing alone near the bottom shed but this tender seemed to be in good condition could any one confirm this was the tender above the date seen was 22/05/09

    I think the tender above is from a ROD class 04 2-8-0 as the GWR did have some after the ww1 .

    The tender at Wiliton is off one of the manors

    There was more than one ROD/O4 tender modified in this way - one was acquired without wheelsets (possibly also from the West Somerset? I forget) and parts used in the restoration of the one now preserved behind loco 63601, the remains (I think) being scrapped. I can't say whether 63601's tender used the frames which came from the NRM with the loco or the ones from the water carrier, or whether that was this one or another one. I believe the one mentioned at the West Somerset is similar (I've never seen it myself).

    This tender had been at Landore for ages- it was there when I used to visit in the late 1960s. The ex-ROD tenders went to Collett '2251' 0-6-0s after the withdrawal of the RODs, I believe.

    A tank from a tender at the West Somerset Rly (and therefore presumably 070840) was removed and placed on the chassis of the tender that was preserved with the GCR 2-8-0 (BR no 63601) in 1999. I don't know what happened to the chassis of 070840 subsequently. This information is drawn from the Great Central Railway newsletter archive pages.
