Every Steam Engine Needs a Tender!

Click on each picture for a closer look!
We have been reporting progress on the assembly of the steam engine in a workshop in Markham in previous posts. Another team of TRHA volunteers is simultaneously working on the assembly of the tender for this steam engine in a workshop in Burlington.
In the picture at the above right, we see Pat, Michael and Michael working on the riveting of the tender body. In the middle picture, we see the dry-fitted tender body. This picture gives you a good sense of the massive size of this tender. There are two stainless steels tanks in the tender, one for water and one for diesel fuel. In the right hand picture, we see one of the tender trucks which have already been assembled.
