Confusingly it doesn't seem possible to find this on the site as the number goes to 968010 a snowplough.
I saw this sludge tender at Watford Junction 10/07/76 when it was marked Cond.

I don't have many details for this number series but thought photo may be of interest. Looks like the use of this number was duplicated on both vehicles.

Any steam buffs around able to identify a possible origin for this tender. It looks very vintage to me, and I assume that it would have had a centre set of wheels.

DB966513 I have it built in 1880 and condemned at Watford C&W in period 4/76. It was sold for scrap from the LMR Region in period 13/76. Bob Wallace records it as a ZRO ZR309A design code.

It looks to me very much like a GCR 2-8-0 tender, probably from one of the ex-ROD WW1 surplus locos. I saw a couple of these tenders in the Swindon Works dump in the 1980's
