I'm looking to do a couple of WP Challengers. I have a poor copy of the diagram. Any recommendations for the tender? This will be a slow project.



Thanks in advance.

IMRC Cab Forward tender might be a good start or the Bachmann N&W J class tender.  Both look to be about the right length but will require new trucks (from a Bachmann J3 tender?) and sides.  The Cab Forward tender's got the right lines and straight sides, but that Bachmann tender's got the curved tops to the sides.  Of course, a scratchbuild might be easier.
Now seeking Pacific NW N scalers to create a Modutrak-style modular club featuring NP's shared mainline between Seattle and Portland. PM me if interested.

I want to say Mainline Modeler did plans of these at some point.  It's a welded tender, so scratchbuilding shouldn't be too hard, plus trucks from a bachmann J or C&O tender.
