Re: New Member
- Thanks for letting me know Greg. I presume that drawing isn't in the
public domain, but would you know how I could go about obtaining a
copy? Feel free to contact me off list if that makes it easier.

I was a bit absent minded last night and forgot to post a message
about the annual.
What you are looking for is the 2008 Modeler's Annual, they might
still have copies if you call that number I posted yesterday.
However, the Modeler's Annuals if you've never purchased one are pricy
but well worth it, the 2008 edition is loaded with NCNG plans and
photos although I did note a couple blatantly wrong captions.
when you are looking for information about NCNG and particular the
whaleback tender of No. 8, "The 2007 Narrow Gauge Annual", "The 2007
Modelers Annual" and "The 2008 Narrow Gauge Annual" published by
Westlake are a must have. The 2007 Modelers Annual features the
drawing of the whaleback tender made by Al Armitage besides a couple
of photos of No.8 and a lot of drawings of other rolling stock. The
other Annuals are very good source for photos of the NCNG in general.
(Some of them never published before)
Not to mention G. Best's "Nevada County Narrow Gauge" book that
provides a load of photos and history as well.
Hope my informations are helpful
Almost forgot - an other post mentions a drawing of No.7 made by Ed
Gebhardt. Although the whaleback tender was attached to No.7 for a
while, this drawing shows the tender that came from No.6 and is quite
unique in design.

Thanks for the offer. I've already been sent a copy by another very
kind member, and it just so happens that today I picked up the very
last copy of the Modeller's Annual with No.8's tender drawing, plus
lots of excellent pics and other wonderful NCNG drawings. It was only
put back on the shelf yesterday at a railway bookshop in the city I
was visiting as someone had asked for it to be put aside but didn't
come to pick it. What a shame!!
I'm sure others would be glad to see a copy of the drawing though if
you did want to post it as I noticed a few people had asked the
question before I had (note to self, search posts before posting in

- Hi all!
Talking about NCNG 8 tender, does anybody have an idea what was used
for the decking?
For the tender frame, I guess (please correct me when I am wrong)
they used U-shaped steel bars.
