The design of the tank and anchor mountings are very similar to the style used by Hurst Nelson. However, the underframe is a much later build than the tank, being standard RCH pattern construction.

Appears to be one of the Midland Railway barrels diag 838. Unless it has been published in the MR Journal the history seems confused, with some number series being associated by Essery with diag 830 which had quite a different barrel. There is some evidence they were put on new frames - possibly about 1949. DM45 (now at Butterley - not preserved!) and DM 53 are in this collection http://paulbartlett.zenfolio.com/lmstank I never went to Mach.. and this is not either of those wagons, but as can be seen very similar.
