470 Tender Drawings

posted Jul 25, 2016, 8:11 PM by Richard Glueck   [ updated Jul 25, 2016, 8:12 PM ]
These are accurate drawings, reflecting measurements and details taken directly from 470's tender. The drawings were custom made by member Keith Muldowney, who produced them for New England Steam Corporation. They may be reproduced for modeling but may not be copied for sale. Funding to rebuilding and refinish the tender frame, brake rigging and trucks, has been granted by the Mystic Railroad Society. A fund to replace the tender cistern (tank) and coal bunker is underway. The new tender will be an exact copy of the historic, built from the original pattern. Please contribute generously to help replace this essential part of the locomotive. Please label you contribution as being for the tender.
