Many thanks. The good news is that I model N&W, Vgn., C&O, and a freelance
RR of my own "imagineering" which just happens to operate 23T, 16,000 gal.
round top tenders with fishbelly sideframes!

These are "belt and suspenders" questions to make sure I've reached a
correct conclusion.

Was the class 18A tender the only one with the fishbelly side sills?

Is the NWSL HO model, marked on the box as a "16,000 gallon" tender,
inaccurate, in that while it's got the superstructure and overall length of a class
16, it has the 18A fishbelly side sills, making it a model with no prototype?

My conclusions are based on Jim Nichols' "Arrow" series in 1999-2000, the
Wallace and Wiley book, and staring at dozens of photos and drawings in other
publications. But, verification by others would be most appreciated.
