If you have not already spotted them, Zander-Heba have drawings of some of the variants at 1:40 scale. Those available are listed on that site under their Prussian class types, G7.3 & G8.2 & G8.3. Tenders attached to these locos were 3 T 16.5, 3 T 20 or 2'2' T 21.5.

If you wanted to model a loco in the 56.2->8 series then you would have to source further information as the boiler is on different mountings being further forward and higher. I think!

As I'm sure you know there are a number of videos of the preserved Tr5-65 (= war reparation BR56 to Poland) on youtube.

Thanks Phil. I have seen the G8.3 drawings, just not all the drawings are available. Maybe I need to meld the G8.2 drawings with the G8.3
