Status Under Restoration/Overhaul
Notes Tender 3119 was a 1st series Bulleid Merchant Navy (MN) Tender. During restoration the original 5,000 gallon tank was sold to Southern Locomotives Ltd (SLL) and mounted on a new build chassis in 1994 creating a hybrid Bulleid tender (SLL No.000) until December 2015 when the tank was removed and sold for scrap. The replacement tank for chassis 3119 was the original tank from Bulleid 5100 gallon tender no. 3130. The tank was modified at an unknown date by shortening the coal bunker by 2'4", the coal capacity being reduced by approximately 0.75 tons though water capacity remained unchanged. At present the tank from tender 3130 has been removed from chassis no 3119 as it is considered life expired though is available to other groups as a pattern or source of spares. It is being replaced with a new 5250 gallon tank as fitted to several Bulleid (Maunsell Eastleigh Pattern) 3 axle frames in BR days. This tank was delivered to the Great Central by November 2019, work on the chassis is continuing including replacement of front dragbox and frame in front of the leading wheels.
