LNER STREAMLINED NON-CORRIDOR TENDER
BRIEF HISTORICAL DETAILS 
The 23 streamlined non-corridor tenders which form the subject of this kit were built at Doncaster under four tender 
order numbers.

Four tenders to this pattern were built for the P2 Class under Order No. 62 (5576-79). Tenders 5636,5638,5639,5641 & 5642 were transferred to new A4 class locomotives 4902,4464,4903,490 1 & 4468. Their front handrails were unaltered at 4' 3". From about 1942 the built up slatted coal gates were gradually replaced by ones cut from sheet steel. 

From 1948 the height of the tender canopy on the five tenders still attached to classes Al & A3 was reduced to 12' 1"; these are termed Low Front in these instructions. The preserved A4's, 4468 'Mallard', 60008 'Dwight D. Eisenhower' & 4464 'Bittern' have this design of tender. 

The W1 60700 received tender 5639 from 1948 onward off A4 60014.
