Sleet tenders attached to the front and rear of an empty service train are being used to de-ice conductor rails. One prototype tender has already been completed at Acton Works and another is under construction. The tender consists of a specially constructed four-wheel bogie to which is fitted de-icing equipment similar to that of a sleet locomotive i.e., three sets of crushing rollers, steel brushes and de-icing sprays. One of the three sets deals with the center negative rail, and the other two with the positive rail.
