Does any manufacturer make Buckeye 6-wheel tender trucks? Precision Scale did, buy looking at their web site reveals this item is no longer in their catalog

Athearn makes (or made) these trucks. You can find them at swap meets for cheap every once in a while.

Never mind what I said, those Athearn trucks weren't for a tender.

Well, perhaps it doesn't matter of they're for a tender or not. But wait, if they're all-plastic that is a problem if you're depending on tender electrical pick-up. Anyway, thanks for the tip
