Loco Depot Tender Truck

  PROTOTYPE. Tender trucks of this type were coupled to small tank locos to provide extra coal supplies and carry the tools and equipment required for a long days work in sidings remote from the main loco depot. They were fitted with footboards and handrails to allow staff to ride along safely between shunting movements.

  Tender trucks accompanied locos on industrial and light railways and were used extensively in Scotland on the LNER, North British lines. These tenders were not necessarily coupled to one engine only but were changed at the loco depot from one to another as operating duties required.

  KIT. Main construction is straightforward and uncomplicated but corner strapping and handrails provide some pleasantly challenging detail work. Castings for shovels, oil bottles and buckets are included.
