Pennsy K4 Tender from Down Under

Post by saint » Tue Jan 26, 2010 2:41 pm

I'd like to share with the forum some photos of an Australian friend's K4 tender that he recently completed.

Holy cow! I think I see a rivet out of place by a 32nd of an inch!

Seriously, what a beautiful job on the tender! This man is a meticulous. I can't wait to see the K4s, itself.

If I put that much mechanical beauty into just the tender, I dont think I could get it dirty. It would be under a dome in a museum.

What can I say? I dont build that far into detail. It is amazing.

Major material. Looks more like Galvanized than Stainless. Which was used? Either way, beautiful work.
