Great Western Tender, No. W84, formerly No. 2641, 1941
Great Western Tender, No. W84 is featured in this official image taken in April 1941. Formerly No. 2641, this 4000 gallon engine tender was requisitioned by the Government for use with a fire fighting train. Fire fighting trains were located at key points across the network to react quickly in the event of an air raid. The water in the tenders was used to put out fires and one of the fire fighting trains had 6 tenders attached which held up to 15,000 gallons of water, enough to supply water to attached petrol motor pumps for up to two and a half hours
