Two completed sand boxes for the back of the tender tank. The lid on the left is original, the lid on the right was cast from the old one, used as a pattern. The sheet metal extends up into the top casting about 1 1/2 inch, and flares out over the bottom casting a similar amount, in order to shed water. Four draw bolts keep the units together. After this shot was taken, the sand boxes were taken apart, sand blasted, and internally painted.
