Boston and Albany RR Tender

Recommended Posts

I built this tender for a B&A F2 Class 4-6-0 which I finished because of running issues I ended up scrapping the project.  I wish I took photos:sad:.  The F2 group consisted of twenty locomotives built by Schenectady in 1907 with 22x26 inch cylinders, 69-inch drivers, and 200 lbs. of boiler pressure.  Some had the cylinder bore increased by one inch and were designated F-12 Class.  I built this after Christmas because my B&A D1a 4-6-6t had running issues(cough caugh**vertical drive motor). Overall I am pretty happy with this model and I turned out well. Instead of using a flex tube, I used black coffee stirrers which are nearly the exact same size as flex tube and they are $2 for 300:classic:.   This is a good runner and **Bonus** can run on R40.
