Both the IC and the Milwaukee Road had numerous tenders converted to sand cars. The Milwaukee also converted their old tenders to snowplows and flangers.

What’s the mystery about the L&N sand car, Claus? Looks to me like a standard tender
frame from a smaller steam loco with a home built bunker for sand added to it. A lot of
steamers went to scrap with perfectly good tenders or tender frames if the tank was shot.
Cordially, Don Valentine
