Lee,
Their website says it is a type of screen printing.
Here is their explanation https://blog.bonfire.com/optimizing-designs-screen-printing/

Thanks,

Just curious, how do they print these shirts? It's not screen printed and not that new printing process directly to the shirt (like the Avery County museum did with their caboose 505 shirts a while back). It's not iron-ons either, but sort of has that feel.
Don't get me wrong, I do like it, just wondering how best o care for it. For now, I'll just wash it inside-out as I do all my printed shirts.
Man, this is a golden age for ET&WNC fans for good swag!
Has anyone gotten one of the hats? Just curious for first opinions... I assume they're also printed and not embroidered?

Cy Crumley eyeballs one of the Ensor daughters as his train pulls away from Hunter, along the (fictional) Stoney Creek branch of the ET&WNC on my On30 layout.

This is the New England Press Association. They rode the ET in 1885.I wrote about them in Volume 6. Very rare photo. This photo was in that book.

Great photo. Never seen a photo of those cars with that lettering...I'm assuming these would be the "Linville River Railway" cars, #4 etc, but my notes say they were bought second hand in 1903. So either the suggested date is not accurate (ET didn't even run 'til 1882), or I'm mis-identifying the cars (which is entirely possible, given my scant knowledge of the passenger cars).

Somebody help me here with what cars these would have been. Gotta get some sleuthing in before Christmas!  :)

Thanks for sharing Brent!

I've finished the Little Doe River at Hampton. It was a good way to get some experience before tackling the Doe River through the Gorge. I've become a big fan on Woodland Scenics water products.

Lee,
I'm sorry about the hat sizes. Unfortunately, I have no control over what sizes the printing vendor offers.

Thanks,
Ryan

I just wish you'd do the caps for people with larger sizes. Most adjustable hats won't go beyond about 7 1/2. Port Authority makes a good panel strap adjustable hat that will go to a little over 7 3/4. Over the years, I've noticed that lots of train fans tend to have bigger noggins (as well as guts, but no amount of exercise will shrink your skull).
Snapback mesh hats are a 'thing' among the millennium crowd for some reason, but there's a reason they're not mainstream anymore.
Yeah, I'd buy one of the solid back ones, if only they'd fit my bucket head...

That's a great scene, one that sadly panned out for very few families in the Linville Gap area back then...

I hope you all don't get annoyed by me sending another email, but I have added some new ET&WNC shirt/hat designs.
The first one is inspired by a photo of an ET&WNC pass I found online. The other two are an ET&WNC hat and stocking cap (toboggan for those of us in East TN ;) ).  The link to the online store is https://www.bonfire.com/store/above-ground-apparel/
