Bachmann separate tenders

This may have been covered already but a search didn't turn it up.

Is the newly release Bachmann separate tender a "plug in" match to the Spectrum 2-8-0?

Thanks,

Marty

One is, the USRA medium. Bachmann also offers the USRA short as used on the 0-6-0, and USRA long as actually used on the 2-10-2, as well as a smaller slopebacked tender. Believe the C&O style Vanderbilt tender is available separately as well.

Ya know every once in a while Bachmann actually comes up with a good idea.  This was one of them.   An easy way to add electrical pickups to any steamer.   All we need now is a universal drawbar to connect them to any engine.

And, curiously, the tender retails for $29, while a whole new 0-6-0 can be had for $25...
