By the way, from what I understand (and I could be wrong) the new P2K Y
is going to have the ex-ACL tender with the four axle trucks... feel
free to correct me if I'm wrong.

Hi All;
First of all, the Bachmann USRA Heavy 4-8-2 is appropriate for a K2, and
take a bit of modification to become a K1, though it is certainly a very
reasonable project.
You can get Bachmann Spectrum A-tanks from Trainworld for less than $20
each plus s&h (so purchase several at once), which a good price just for
a pair of trucks of that detail level with electrical pickups.
I have purchased a P2K Y3 tender off of e-bay.  The forth coming release
by Life Like is for a USRA 2-8-8-2 (no Worthington BL, pumps on the
smokebox, etc), so the tender should be different too.
There was a series in Model Railroading several years ago on creating a
E3 from a Spectrum PRR K4, one of the articles was on creating a tender
from the then current Bachmann A tank, the new Spectrum A tank should
work even better for that conversion.
For the PM tenders, the Rivarossi Berkshire tender is close, and the
whole locomotive can be had for $50 from Trainworld, they may even have
some of those with two tenders.......

	Greetings folks, 
	I recently purchased Bachman's 4-8-2. Now, after breaking it in
and putting a "correct" headlight on it, I'm ready to go for a correct
Tender. Just one problem.... Where do I start? I've tried Life-Like to
just get the frame and body from the old Y3 release... no good (go
figure, it was worth a try though!). I also have a picture of a K with
an ex Pierre Marquette tender. It just so happens that I have and old
Rivarrossi Berkshire tender that would only need a little work to look
right. If I go that route, anyone know what tender trucks would be
correct? Anyone have any other ideas?
	BTW, don't try ordering Bachman's auxiliary water tender
trucks... they're out of stock for a "few months". Who else makes these
trucks? My old brass K3 could use a new set also!!!
