    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.
