Any thoughts on modeling #142 I was thinking you could take the lionel 2-8-2 they just came out with. In HO bachman has already came out with a 142.

1850? Is this eather a new engine or a older unit  re-numbered? I read your post in the Bel-Del topic but I still do not know?
 
Back to modeling...
The tenders are so defrent it is not eathen funney 142's tender is like #26's and #90's tenders combined.

Joe, #142's tender is not like #40's tender, it not like any built in the USA. I never thought to take a picture of her tender before so I had some fun looking for some pics of simular tenders in china, and I had fun looking. This is what I found
