In HO and N scales, you sell seperate tenders in several different designs.  Have you thought about doing this in On30?  You could do a whaleback like several roads used, or shorter versions of the Connie tender.  Have you ever considered this?

Great idea, Andy!

Adding more variety to Bachmann´s models by selling separate tenders would give a enourmous chance to get "my special model" by changing the tender. Same, if Bachmann would have the various letterings in stock.

Just a example: If I have a Bachmann Consolidation lettered for the imaginable Pocahontas Lumber Co (No.27 when I get it right...) and if I want a identical engine with another Number, I could buy a separate Pocahontas Lumber lettered tender and add it to my engine which could have been a Midwest Quarry... They share the same design, black with iron colored smokebox...

Bach-man, think of it; I would suggest this to be a gread addition to your range,
the kitbashers would get crazy about this issue, though... Wink Wink Wink

Cheers, Tom

You can buy an extra tender from the ladies in Bachmann Parts.  They are not giving them away, though.  I was quoted $40.00 for a Mogul tender which seems a bit steep for what is a pretty plain jane model.  I'd go $40 for a Connie tender.  What about it Bach Man, put in the good word for me???

The HO scale ones go for between $37 and $53. The don't have much more detail but do have the circut bords inside(although I can't imagen that these are worth much). Also the ON30 ones are larger so $40 dosen't seem verry far off.
