As part of an ongoing project I recently acquired 34067 Tangmere from the Hornby stable. So far so good. Now the snag, the model is supplied with the original highsided tender with early crest, said project is set in 1959 when Tanmere was running with a cut down late crest tender.

My question - does anyone want to swap tenders?

Regards

I have the tender from the 'Combe Martin' West Country that came with the Pines Express set. It has a late emblem and is I beleive the cut down version i.e. not the one shown on the Hornby website with R2542 'City of Wells' but the one shown with R2607 '213 Squadron. Since my layout is to be based on the Bournemouth area in the early to mid 50's I would be happy to swop if your tender is in very good condition like mine.

Hi John,

That's the tender I'm after.

I will PM you to confirm.

Hi Dave,
I may be wrong but I think you'll have to re-do the loco lining as those locos running with the tender raves intact had the boiler casing lining extended along the cabside and those with the cut down tenders had the boiler lining terminate at the cabfront and had the usual BR cabside lining in a panel.
You probably already thought of this and I'm just waffling on for no good reason.

Regards Andii

Hi Andii,

Yer right - about the waffle anyway
However if you think about it it's easier to swap the tender and reline the cab sheets, than it is to hack the tender to pieces and have to reline that as well!

But thanks for the thought.

Regards

As a matter of interest I have two West Country and one Battle of Britain all of which were supplied by Hornby with the cut down tender. Two have the upper stripe continued along the cab and one does not. Whether this is is correct or not I will leave it to the experts to decide
