Question for the group:  B-8 is pictured on the bottom of pg 79 of The VGN Railway handbook.  Anyone know what type of tender served with this crane?  Was it the VGN “semi-whaleback” (for lack of a better name) or was it a more squared off type.  Overland produced this or a very similar crane in O scale years ago and it is now painted and sitting the the yard on the layout but can’t go anywhere else on the layout because there is no fuel and water supply to go with it!
Right now the web site is down – waiting for the youngest son to fix things.  Once it is up again I’ll add some more photos and let everyone know.
Many thanks – Michael Ross
