Ok, dumb question but I need to know. Im planing a porter bash but I am unsure where the fuel (wood in my case) would go if it does not have a tender. I assume it goes in the cab somewhere, but really do not know. Any info on this or other porter subjects would be great. thanks in advance.

Also this is the idea I had in mind, something along these lines anyways.

Cody-since the little Porters just had an engineer, no fireman..the wood/coal/oil tank were usually located in the cab on the "fireman's" side. Hope this helps.

Yes it does, so a stack of wood on the fireman's side it will be. Thanks.
