I support Joe T's desire for separate sale Vanderbilt tenders, but the preferences involve more than just medium length vsrsus shorty, and DC versus DCC. Another coal tender is worthless to those Pacific Coast modelers with oil-burning steam locomotives to keep fueled. I suspect that Bachmann  would respond sooner if the questions of length, fuel type and power source didn't have so many variables.

Deep South roads west of the Mississippi and southwestern roads largely burned oil too.  Texas and Louisiana were, and still are, huge oil producers you should thank when you fill r up.

I have two of the medium oil bunker ones, wish I'd bought 10 while they were there.

If you look in the Bachmann catalog (on line) for parts you'll find several Vanderbilt tenders (complete) for sale for around $15.00

Could be a start, quite expensive though.

These Vanderbilts are the versions without any electronics on board. It could be a start though. Buy one of the Vanderbilt chassis and mount it on one of the 4-4-0 or 4-6-0 tender frames that come with the electronics.  This would only take care of the smaller Vanderbilt.

Why not buy an inexpensive decoder, if all you are looking for is lights, and motor control.  Install said decoder into that tender and use whichever frame you want.  In for a penny...
