Several questions about Southern Pacific's 0-6-0 switchers. I model SP on my layout. I know most SP steam locomotives burned oil and most had the Vandy tender. Were the Vandy tenders on the 0-6-0's proportionally smaller? Was there a "standard" size for all Vandy tenders? Would a
Pacific 4-6-2's Vandy tender be the same size as an 0-6-0's tender? I looked on Espee Railfan's website, which is very informative, but I can't tell.
There is a method to my madness. I have a Premier MTH Texas Pacific 0-6-0 switcher. It has a coal tender. I also have a brand new K-Line SP Vandy tender. It is semi-scale. I was thinking of repainting, re-lettering and re-numbering this locomotive and using the K-Line SP Vandy tender with it to make it an SP 0-6-0 switcher. I'm wondering if the K-line tender would be the correct size. Matt
