Description

The flush-welded version of the Stanier 4000 gallon/9 tons coal tender first appeared behind two huge builds of Black 5s constructed by Armstrong, Whitworth. It was also allocated to all the rebuilt Patriots, at the expense of the Jubilees, which then had to soldier on with the small Fowler tenders, although some members of the class did eventually acquire them. The flush tender was also commonly seen behind 8F 2-8-0s. The tender underframe had standard axleboxes, but note that the water sieve boxes supplied in pack TF1 were not fitted. The body curves are preformed.

A listing showing the types of tender first allocated to all the Stanier/Ivatt Black 5 locomotives is available here.

Sold as one each of the TB2, TF1 and TC3 packs, at a discounted price.
