    Hi all,
    I am looking for a Black Hornby Stanier tender from a 8F or a Black 5. It needs to be the non motored version as used with Loco drive versions of the above locomotives. I want to couple it to a non motor drive 8F to make a non motored loco to tow dead in a train.

    Would prefer the Hornby version but would consider the Bachmann versions from Rebuilt Scot, Rebuilt Patriot or Jubilee, provided they were black!

    Many thanks
    Paul

    Hi Paul.
    Is there anything suitable available on Ebay? Failing that, are there any local "Toy & Train Fairs" you might pick one up from? You could possibly use a motorised one and just remove the 'Pancake' motor, might come in useful for that Lima Class 117 as they are pretty much the same motor.:thumbup:

    Keith.

    Paul, I have an Airfix powered tender (ex Royal Scot?) which is ok and will only need the bogie taking out and a squirt of black paint, or if you are brave I also have a K's 8F kit with tender. All the castings are there but will need wheels, motor nut and bolts etc. They are surplus to requirements and the kit will probably never be built. PM me if interested.
