Type & Original Water Capacity Maunsell 3500 or 4000 gallon (tank only)
Present Number Un numbered
Status Other
Notes New build tank constructed possibly in late 1980's or early 1990's. It has curved in coal plates at the top which were only found on 4000 gallon tanks but the back corners are square and it is thought that 4000 gallon tanks all had rounded rear corners, while 3500 had square rear corners. Confirmation of the water capacity is needed. Originally intended to be fitted to a Maunsell Eastleigh 3 axle chassis that had previously been used as a snowplough and was intended to run with SR U class 2-6-0 no. 31625. Though placed on the chassis work was never completed and 31625 ran with another tender. Stored for many years in this condition on the Mid Hants Railway the tank and chassis were transferred to the Swanage Railway in 2014. In 2017 chassis that the tank had been on was fitted with a Maunsell 3500 gallon tank and is listed in the Tender Register as Unknown Maunsell 3500 gallon hybrid. At present this tank is stored at Norden on the Swanage Railway.
