Does anyone know what makes these BLI tenders so wonderful that they have a $70 price tag?  That's more than a BLI California Zephyr passenger car.

  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.

    The new a-tanks were on the BLI web site last evening. Cal Reynolds.
