Hi Garry,

 

Early CR tenders had a flat hinged lid with a projection at the front for lifting it by.  I can scan you a drawing and send it off-list if you like?

I'll dig out the drawing in the next day or two.  Can't remember whether it was a Neilson or Dubs build.

Hi Garry and Jim,

 

Perhaps I can be of help here. The tenders on these engines were standard Glasgow & South Western Railway design. There seems to have been some arrangement with Dubs to use the tender drawings which were originally designed by Hugh Smellie and perpetuated by James Manson with only minor alterations. As supplied to the MSJW there were some differences, the axleboxes and springs and the buffers which were probably the company standard. When the GWR took them over there were other alterations made which changed the appearance. The locomotives themselves were not like anything the Sou' West had.

 

I have copies of the GA so will send you a scan in the morning.

 

Ian
