No.3217 is a ‘Special Tank’ Explain 'Special Tank 0-6-0T Locomotive Class', seen here at Crewe South, with a flimsy cab roof fitted. The curved shape of the original cab back plate can clearly be made out, including the two ‘porthole’ windows. The cover to the water filler on top of the saddle tank Explain 'Saddle Tank' has been left open, and the step the crew used to get up to it can be seen immediately above the prominent pipe at the base of the saddle tank. Below and in front of the cab is a ground signal Explain 'Ground Signal', used to control shunting Explain 'Shunting' movements.
