This excellent shot of No.3240 illustrated variations on these ‘4ft shunters’: The chimney sports a spark arrester  Explain 'Spark Arrester', temporarily swung out of use, and a bell above the rudimentary cab, both required for use in Liverpool docks. The brake blocks Explain 'Brake Blocks' are still of wood. The saddle tanks  Explain 'Saddle Tank' were not very deep on this design and one wonders if they really held enough water.
