Disneyland RR: Riding in the tender

Hi All,
If you have ever had the chance to ride in the tender on the train, could you please answer a couple of questions?

First, I know you are supposed to go to the Main ST. station and ask about it right away. Will they tell you to come back around a certain time so you can ride, or do you have to wait there the whole time until one becomes available? I would really love to do this with my husband, I think he'd really enjoy it, but I'm not sure he'll want to wait around for a long time to do it. Ok, I said a couple of questions, but I can't honestly remember my second question. LOL! So I guess that's it. Thanks!

I have done it a couple of times. Just ask the CM. We were put on the first train that would allow us to sit up there. It is a very small spot. It will fit two adults. I sat with my DD and another time with her and a friend. It is really neat to do, it does get very warm sitting there because of the engine.

It is also a circle tour... once on you need to ride all the way around back to the Mainstreet Station.

This sounds really cool, but I know nothing about trains. Tender?

The Tender is the right behind the actual engine. You pretty much are sitting with the Engineers, so you get a nice little "tour" of how the train works and stuff like that. Here's a Youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XuY5yBNPFvM

Thanks for the link. Is it Tender or Tinder. I've seen it both ways. Is the term interchangeable?

Hmmm......Good question! I looked around and found out that "tinder" is highly combustible material used to start a fire, which seems to fit, but then I saw this page: Background information for Trains And right under the picture of the train is the word in question.....it is spelled "Tender". It's spelled the same way in the glossary: Steam Locomotive Glossary So, I'm going to stick with "TENDER". LOL!
