Well the cars are all loaded, even the ex-tengola .  The tender is back in the shop as of an hour ago.  Too late to work on it tonight.  I will have to stay busy tomorrow to get it done.   First pic is a shot of the stainless tank with the water valves for the injectors, and the drain valve that will be mounted under the tender.  Ray III

Ray,  It looks really nice with the gloss black on her.  Keep it clean ( as clean as can be behind a steam engine) so you won't have to wear the paint off cleaning it to add lettering.    Have fun and take pics.
