Vandy Tender

Vandy Tender in Fort Worth, TX, circa 2002

Former NC& St.L Vandy tender as probably used behind a L-1 Mike (I have no other info as yet), converted to work train service (couplers both ends and freight car air brake system added) and used by the L&N as such till about 1992. It was then sold to an outfit in Texas who had great plans for it and has never used it since. Now it is surplus. Supposedly it is in good condition, not on original trucks but the original (worn out) Vulcan friction trucks are also available.

Approximate measurements are:
1. Approximate length - still unknown;
2. Height - 12' high
3. Width - 10' 2" wide
4. Estimate of weight -- as near as we can figure, 25 tons without the trucks
5. The 4 Vulcan Friction trucks weigh about 4 tons apiece
