Notes This tender arrived at Woodham Bros, Barry behind LMS 4F no. 44422. Tender number is based on the last tender shown as allocated to this loco on BR records. It was to have been used with new build LMS Patriot class 4-6-0 no.45551. Chassis was extensively rebuilt by Rowescourt Engineering, Alfreton. Both front and rear drag boxes and the inner frames were replaced, the outer frames being retained. However when this work was completed it was deemed unsuitable for mainline running and an all new tender was constructed incorporating the newly manufactured drag boxes and inner frames from this tender.
