Hello Fellow Fans of the ETWNC,
I hope this finds you well and anticipating a joyous Easter. My model railroad friend, Bill Nelson, and I have just completed a scratchbuilt “Tweetsie” Hopper car for my future On30 layout. Here are a few pictures of the model in primer gray.
Well, now I have some questions for you good people. What is the prototype color of these cars in 1920 – 1923? Prototype pictures done in black-and-white appear to show a Black or very dark gray external paint job.
What do you all think? Should the next paint be black??
As a second followup question,any ideas where to get decals for these cars in the ET&WNC livery in “O” scale?
Thank you in advance for any information you could provide. It is appreciated.
Please have a blessed and peaceful Easter!
