Paul and list,

Interesting you mention the Erie Berkshire tender A200 in Cleveland. I have
linked to a photo I took of the same tender in August 1967 in the 47th
Street EL yards in Chicago. I have no idea where it went from there. I
imagine it probably was eventually scrapped.

The other two photos show another steam tender #04023 being used by the EL
at Far Hills, NJ on the P&D for rail grinding service in 1970. I have no
idea of the heritage of that tender, but it is definitely not the same as
the A200.
