There were a few of the H-5's and H-6's late in life that got the larger vanderbuilt as water towers started to disapear from what I understand. The long vanderbuilt also showed up on many other loco's. I have a shot of Pacific #492 setting under the Western Hills Viaduct in Cincinnati with one of the long vanderbuilts tenders on the back of it.I also have a shot of Mikado's #2338, 2341, 2342 with long vanderbuilt tenders on them. (I plan to use a Kato Mikado and the Bachmann vanderbuilt to represent one of these eventualy.)The VC-12 tender that comes with the H-4 is the correct tender for it. On the B&O side of things, an H-5 can be converted to work as a KK-1. There was an article in the B&O Modeler a year or so back on how to perform the conversion to the HO version. *** Edit - nomenclature changes
