This image shows a GWR Loriot fitted with weedkiller tank and cab. To operate smooth running services the GWR needed to keep their tracks and tracksides free of unwanted weeds and foliage. The GWR's weedkilling trains usually consisted of an engine and three tenders. The tenders held water which was mixed with the weedkilling solution held in a separate tank. It was then sprayed out the back onto the tracks with jets
