Introduction
Although George Stephenson's `Rocket' and other well-known early locomotives carried their fuel and water supplies on a separate tender, there was one competitor in the famous Rainhill trials held by the Liverpool and Manchester Railway in 1829 which carried its coal and water in receptacles on the engine framing. This was the `Novelty' built by Braithwaite and Ericsson, and it was the first `tank' engine to run on a public railway.
It was not until 1866, however, that a tank engine with front coupled wheels and a trailing bogie was designed, by Cudworth for the South Eastern Railway. In appearance it looked like an 0.4.0 in which the locomotive and tender were mounted on a single frame with the coal and water carried by the rear bogie. Similar designs were brought out a few years later by the Midland and North Eastern Railways, but in 1872 Samuel W. Johnson, when Locomotive Superintendent of the Great Eastern Railway designed the first 0.4.4T with tanks on either side of the boiler and inside framing for all wheels. This type subsequently came into widespread use on most of the ore-Grounina railways and some of these are illustrated.
