I recently purchased a Red Comet (11-6047-1) from Pat's Trains.  Pat pointed out that the tender had no coal load as delivered from the factory.  I checked, and sure enough, it is pictured in the catalog with out any coal load.  The loco is a 264E and the tender is a 265WX (very small tender).  Does anyone know if there is a coal load I could purchase for this tender.  It has a curved top on each side, that looks like a skinny coal load could be slid into it.  If there is nothing available, I was thinking of buying some plastic coal, and gluing it to a piece of fiberboard and then sliding it into the space.  Any other, better ideas?  Thanks in advance for any input.

And here I thought it was just invisible.  Didn't imagine I had such a treasure.  Think I could market it for re-sale that way?  Should be worth THOUSANDS!
