 Gentlemen ,
   
    I am trying to create my own steam loco roster and I have two questions they are :
 
I already have converted and repowered a older Bachmann 2-8-2 into a 0-8-0

  1- I have a older Bachmann 4-8-4"1990's vintage" and a Bachmann N&W J tender could I place the N&W J tender behind the 4-8-4 or could a clear vision tender that will fit the N&W J tender chassis ?

  2- Can I find just the 4-8-2 loco only? Being that I have the 4-8-2 tender  ..

Clear vision tenders are for switching locomotives, and a 4-8-4 is most certainly not a switch engine, so a clear vision tender wouldn't look very prototypical. The strealined N&W "J" tender might look a little odd behind an ATSF 4-8-4, but try it and see. Doubt you'll find a 4-8-2 minus tender for sale, Bachmann made the tenders available for other models to improve current pickup.
