Reid 4,235g "Scott" tender

The Tender will be the Reid 4,235g tender produced in 1909.  Supplying the tender flared coping as a series of lost wax castings looks to be successful. This is a huge improvement over various methods tried to produce this feature, resulting in the correct profile, correct radius for the corners and the correct scooped out shape to clear the handbrake.   We have plans to produce other NBR tenders that had the same tender tank length and width.  These include the Holmes 3,500g tender and the Reid 4,000g tender.  Each of these tenders could be supplied with a choice of NBR springs and axle boxes or the later LNER springs and axle boxes.

We may consider selling the tender as an individual item if there is sufficient demand.
