I'm stumped with a few things! I have searched but can't find the answers, has anyone any info on this please :-



There are two top brackets left and right with holes and corresponing holes below, (Marked red) it looks like these are for handrails, they are not the tenders corner handrails. Also there is a hole (marked blue and red circle on pic 3) I can't see anything on the plan for this?


There are also two castings, one with a lever...a water valve? The other doesn't have a lever...where do they go?


Phil























Just found this picture.

HI Phil,

3500 gallon tender. Whose? GWR? If so those mushrooms would be a bit off scale. I had a look at the usual sources and could see nothing like the model (or those fittings).

Thanks Nigel but all sorted now.

The tender is almost finished and has had a good clean :)

Hi Phil,

Did you find out what the levers(s) were for? Sanding gear did cross my mind.
