The detail part on the Roundhouse 0-6-0 is their part no. 22305 (also used the number 2L305) “Toolbox” (thank you HOseeker). Here is part of a photo from an eBay sale where they conveniently painted it red and painted the hinges so we could see it is quite different in shape than what is seen on #25 and also has cast on detail which the #25 part does not. (Photo cropped and enlarged and a bit fuzzy, but you can probably get the idea.)
I know of no air reservoir that would be shaped like the part on the G&D engine. It looks more like a cover such as what a hose reel cover might look like, except it is extremely long. But maybe it represents covering a really long hose reel?

Thanks for the reply.
For the MDC/Roundhouse tender I found a fully cylindrical tank with am approximate length of around 5ft, and 2 mounting points a short distance from the ends. No angled mounting brackets or support brackets.
It just doesn't look like what I perceive in the images.
