    Here's a little critter I've been tinkering around with...
    I got the idea from a prototype photo of a CN steam tender that was retired into MOW service.
    I used pieces from a flat car, tender, boxcar, MT trucks & couplers, & some miscelaneous junk to put this together.
    Still haven't finished the other side...

    Looks like it will be pretty cool, Charlie! What are the ribbs going down the side?

    Hi Jon!
    I'm assuming you mean the rivets...?
    Those are the rivets on what's left of the old coal tender.
    I covered the hole where the coal bunker was with a piece of roof from a boxcar...I added some hatches & vents to simulate its conversioninto a tank for holding liquids.
    I had a rough looking edge where I cut out the molded in "coal", so I added a piece of railing to try to hide that.
