Mystery NER? and GWR Tender Chassis's


Recommended Posts

Can anyone identify the two chassis's in this photo taken at the North Yorkshire Moors Railway by Andrew Murray recently?


On top is, I think, a GWR chassis from a Churchward 3500 gallon tender. Is this correct and which locomotive is it from on the NYMR?


Carrying it is a six wheel chassis that I'm pretty sure has been used as an ingot carrier at a steel works. The NYMR have another of these with much bigger frame slots that is definitely from an ex NER tender. I haven't seem narrow slots like this before, is it from a tender, or is it this a home brewed steel works built wagon?


If anyone can help I would like to add the information to the Vintage Carriage Trust Tender Survey website.

Those frame slots aren't NER. NER tender's frame slots were either a 'D' on it's back, or on later tenders the same 'rounded-end rectangle' as the later LNER standard, though with both the same size as NER tenders were equal wheelbase.

Don't look like NER axleboxes either.
