These tenders were built for the Class 900 4-4-0s and gave the class a most gracious appearance. In the 1930s after the locos were relegated to less important work where a large water capacity was unnecessary, these tenders were scrapped and replaced by 6 wheel tenders, generally of 3570 gallon capacity (see kit CT3) from other scrapped locos

CT03  4mm scale McIntosh 3570 gallon tender, Type M3
£40.00. Packed Weight 400g

Generally similar to the M2 type tenders (see kit CT01) but with noticeably higher tank sides, these tenders were originally built for the 0-8-0s of Class 600 and the 4-6-0s of Classes 179, 908 and 918. When the these locomotives were scrapped by the L.M.S. most of the tenders were used to replace bogie types (such as CT02) behind 4-4-0s. After the subsequent scrapping of the 4-4-0s, some tenders then went to Class 812 and 652 locos.

Caledonian Railway Coat of Arms

"Wha dare meddle wi' me" - a loose translation of the Scottish motto (nemo me impune lacessit, litterly meaning "no-one provokes me with impunity") which was appropriated along with the Scottish coat of arms (without any sanction from the Lord Lyon, King of Arms) by the Caledonian Railway Co.
