Slopeback tender

Slopeback tender
Thanks to user "Railcar" at Panoramio for telling me what this car is. More about slopeback tenders from Wikipedia: "In the United States, tenders with a sloped back were often used for locomotives in yard switching service, because they greatly improved the engineer's ability to see behind the locomotive when switching cars. The reduced water capacity was not a problem, as the tender's water tank could be frequently refilled in the rail yard.[1]"

It's one of the most interesting objects I've seen in a long time. I love the WWI military tank look of it.

Hahaha! Sorry I'm so late seeing this. No, I'm pretty sure it isn't.
