This locomotive's tender has been very well filled with coal and it appears to be ready for its next turn of duty. The crews of goods engines like this class J6 No. 64202 often had to make do with lower grade, cheaper coal than than that provided for express passenger locomotives. It made the fireman's job more dirty and difficult.
