What I’d really like is a re-release (in Legacy) of the N&W water tenders, but I’m beginning to think that isn’t in the cards given the recent number of N&W steamers without it making an appearance. Thoughts?
Well, assuming Lionel does produce a Legacy Auxiliary Water Tender buy the boards at the annual Lionel parts sale. Then get one of the N&W brass TMCC auxiliary water tenders and swap the boards.
Great idea, Tom. I’ll try to find the brass tender before this fall’s sale unless by some chance the N&W tender shows up in the v2 catalog.
If you just get the shell/chassis, I have 2 pair of the N&W trucks that are left over from another Aux Tender modification I did. I took the MTH Chessie Safety Special tender and modified it to be more like the prototype, which included changing the trucks out. I have no need for the trucks I took off.
