    Following recent discussions on DPTgen it seems these wagons were mainly used as either containers for water, diesel sludge, waste oil etc at depots although I'm not sure what it was being used for here at Darlington?

    This tender is still in existance in a haulage yard in Doncaster and is visible (to the trained eye) when heading to Sheffield on the left about 3/4 mile from the station. Surprised it's never been preserved.

    The yard this tender is in was reported as up for sale in Steam Railway magazine no 409 Dec 2012. According to the report the NBL Preservation Group (who want to build a replica LNER B17 4-6-0) were appealing for funds to buy it. The SR article says it was acquired from Thornaby

    Hello All, we have purchased this tender for preservation and will be collecting it from Balby Yard, Doncaster tomorrow (16th April 2013). Any information about the tender's history such as tender number, where built, locos it ran with etc etc would be greatly appreciated please.

    Can't add much on this one, except to confirm its previous identity was 108. As 041249 at Darlington DD on 11/5/1974 (Roger Butcher) and there the following month (Mike Kennard). Roger's 1992 IU book has it at Thornaby. I live three miles from the Mizens Railway at Knaphill so a drive past is called for. Keith

    This is pictured leaving its long term home here in Doncaster and is now at the Mizens Railway near Woking after a brief overnight stop in Wishaw.

    This is the tender that sat in the yard near Doncaster Hexthorpe yard for many years.

    Why has it ended up here?

    It seems this tender was originally moved to Mizens for future use with a non-working steam loco replica but this project was abandoned around 2020. The tender appears to have moved to a private site near Sheffield in late 2021 (after October 2021) where it is to be used in the future with new build steam loco replica 61617 currently under construction there.

    Correction - The new build steam loco is 61673.
