"TENDER, MODEL 250. For use with LOCO 234" (Catalogue information)

TENDER MODEL 250

This strong massive tender is illustrated in conjunction with the Model 234 locomotive to which it really belongs. Although sold separately to allow loco to be used with existing tenders if desired, the full beauty of the engine is not realised unless a tender of equally heavy construction and massive proportions is used. If you buy the loco separately, we strongly advise the addition of this well-made tender as early as possible. a glance at the illustration shows how it conforms with the lines and construction of the engine, and it will be realised that the usual tender is much too small and "tinny" for such an engine. Obtainable in colourings of the four main Railway groups, L.N.E.R, L.M.S., G.W.R. and S.R.
