BLI J and A-Tank

My appologies for any confusion in my initial post regarding an 
auxillary tender for the 611 Excursion Verson.  Now that BLI has 
released a N&W Auxillary Tender to go with their N&W Class A 2-6-6-4 
locomotive, I e-mailed them last week to ask if if were possible to 
release a properly painted and lettered A-tank to go with the 611 
Excursion Verson.  Such an A-tank would have the Tuscan Red Band with 
Deluxe Gold edging and lettering that the 611 pulled behind its own 
tender during excursion trips in the 1980s and early 1990s.  Hopefully, 
if BLI receives more inquiries regarding such an "Excursion A-tank" it 
will become a reality.

As a side-note, I was once told that the A-tank the 611 pulled was made 
from two former tenders from the Louisville and Nashville Railroad.  Can 
anybody confirm this and, if so, where is that water-only tender now.  I 
don't believe it's at the Museum in Roanoke.
