According to the listing in Vern French's Williamson terminal book, as
of 31 DEC 1955, the tenders for Z-1's were a mix of 18,000 and 16,000
tenders.  Of the 52 locomotives listed, 21 were listed with 16,000
gallon tenders.  However, there is some uncertainty in this listing as
to the actual tenders assigned to each locomotive.  It would appear that
a Z-1 with a 15,000 gallon tender was headed to the scrap line.  There
was a good deal of swapping around at that time as many steam
locomotives were heading to the scrap or storage lines as the diesel
deliveries built up..


Prior to about 1956, many of the E-2's had 15,000 gallon tenders, 578
certainly did as did 563.  


The 31 Dec 1955 listing shows most of the Y-3's and Y-3a's with fish
belly 18,000 gallon tenders with some locomotives getting the ex-B&LE
22,000 gallon tenders.  


For 1954, the Y-3's, Y-3a's and Z-1'c could use the 16,000 or the
18,000, the E-2 would most likely have the 15,000 gallon tender.

Tender Question

I am working on:
Z1b, E2a, Y3, Y3a.
I have 3 18,000 gal tenders and 1 16,000 gal tender.

In 1954 which of those engine would be the most likely to have the
16,000 gal tender.
E2a #578 got a 18,000 right? but was that later?
On a Z1b what was the most typical tender in '54.
