Does anybody have Drawings for a 5" Light Pacific Tender That I could talk to about it? I have no idea who supplies these Drawings.

I have recently picked up a part finished tender supposedly for a 5" Merchant Navy Class Loco that I am building, but on closer inspection I find that the Tenderit has not been built to the Ariel drawings and is, among other things, a little shorter and the Horn slots are a lot wider than on the Ariel drawings. I suspect that it is a light Pacific Tender but I am far from sure. I would like to get it confirmed or not.

M J Engineering are the only suppliers of drawings that I know of.

I suspect you may have these asyou say the drawing does not tie up,

I believe there were three versions in full size, so yours may be right for another version

Hi Bill,

Thanks for your reply. I got my Drawings for the Ariel MN. From MJ Engineering. When I read your reply I looked at the drawing again (DWG. 19) in case I had missed someting but it shows only one tender with no variations. Your right there were several versions of tender firtted over time to these Locos. There must be a drawing for this Tender whether it is a MN. derivative or a light Pacific as the Tender came with Phosphor Bronze Bearing Block casting with the Logo SR. cast into them. they are too big to fit the Ariel Tender. Unless the previous owner had these cast to his pattern which I think is unlikely.

Hi Colin.

My favorite loco hence the interest and happy to go through what info I have to see if I can help.

Spam cans ran right through the middle of our farm when I was a lad in Braunton. Our farm was either side of the track.

Can you possibly give some dimensions of what you have and / or add some pics to your album please ?
