    This locomotive and water carrying tank car followed the PE weed burner. It’s purpose was to extinguish any fires set by the weed burner. The man on the front deck held a hose and played a stream of water onto fires set by the weed burner. The canvas screen on the front handrail of the locomotive protected the man with the hose from getting too wet. One of the three Cantenary PE videos shows the weed burner and this locomotive/tank car combination doing their assignment.
