Nicely done, looking forward to seeing the tender in action (test it with the Lady, you can't have too many Slomos):

Tender work at the Llewellyn Loco Works.

What is this?
It is a coal board storage shelf/box. It is a feature on Queensland steam locos from the 1940's onwards. It will be on the right hand side of the tender with the open end in the front tender plate. They are inserted before coaling and the coal is piled up against them. One shovels coal off the shoveling plate under the bottom board until the coal is no longer against the front of the tender, then one can reach easily into the bunker and also rake it forward to a pile on the left side so one is set to go hard before a heavy climb. QR locos had 4 boards but this little loco with its shallow height tender has only 2. This simple system found favour here rather than the latching doors which give a lot of grief. I have added them to this tender build for my railway mates kicks and giggles.

You can see the storage box on the left side of the tender and the channels were the boards sit when fully coaled. The boards in this pic are stowed in their box.
