Probably not much, but then again it certainly wouldn't cost them any
business either.

Jerry,
I'm afraid that from a marketing point of view, the folks at Tweetsie
are right. They have defined their park to seek repeat business from
families with kids from five to twelve years old. They are just about the
only people in the United States who still get excited over a REPEAT of a
train robbery or an indian attack. For that five to twelve year old crowd,
the brighter and gaudier it is, the better! Whatever it is, even an honored
old locomotive.

Railfans will never represent the turnstile impact that the kids do. So
Tweetsie must sensibly sell their product to the kids. Thank God #12 remains
part of that product. Remember, she has a heart of gold, no matter what
makeup she's wearing.

I think you missed Marketing 101 somewhere along the way. The paint
job IS really important to JQPublic. Especially if you are 9 or 10
and it is your birthday trip. A steam engine all decked out in brass
and green and yellow with flags and stuff is really an incredible
sight. An all black engine with white lettering just wouldn't have as
much impact. That 9 year old may be a future member of the Historical
Sopciety someday just from that impression.

As a percentage of the gate, I doubt that railfans who are fussy
about historically accurate paint jobs are such a minute percentage
that there would be absolutely no measurable increase in attendance.
A less than stellar experience for that 9 year old may not make him
or her want to return on their 10th birthday though.

If shiny paint is what it takes to make it worthwhile to do a major
shopping on 12 then paint it purple with green polka-dots and let her
roll. Well, maybe not *that*, but consider now that the Tweetsie
scheme has become a historical paint job itself. When you go there
you get to see current history!

Cheers,
Rick

Who said anything about a black engine? #12 was painted in the ET &
WNC's beautiful green and gold with plenty of brass (even a bit of red).

Re: paint jobs

johnny graybeal <johnnyg@...>
 

Well, it seems that a great deal of mental effort is going on out there,
especially from people who have not seen the engine.
As has been said, No. 12 is in the same paint job that she has had for
years. For the record, when they "repainted" her in 1992, it was the same
ole tweetsie paint job, with ET&WNC lettering. And that is all we are
talking about here, the lettering.
When the engine was rolled out last week, she needed to be lettered.
Frank Aldridge chose yellow with red edging because she used to look that
way before the 1979 rebuild. He was honoring her "heritage" so to speak.
It turns out that office management prefers the gold lettering so it will
probably be changed back to gold by next year. It is vinyl lettering, not
paint, and can be changed fairly easily.
Frank Coffey would be the first to point out that 12 has been at
Tweetsie longer now than she was on the ET. She has gone through more
lettering schemes at TRR than anywhere else. This latest scheme is just
another one. One thing you can bet on, 12 will not be painted ET&WNC again
anytime soon. Heritage does not a billboard make.
I would have thought that changing the whistle pitch would have caused
more stir than vinyl lettering. Its the same thing, putting it back to how
it "used to be". I've already heard the complaint, "its not what I;m used
to". Its probably a good thing we don't own the engine, we would spend all
the profit on paint.
My suggestion would be to come see the engine for yourself. The more I
see it the more that yellow and red grows on me, although I will welcome
changing it back. If you don't come this year you may not get to see it.
Let's pick something else to argue over, like the color of the cover of
John Waites book, for petes sake.

GOOD NEWS for EBT fans:

Bill Miller
 

To: EBT-LIST@MAELSTROM.STJOHNS.EDU

Thought some of you not on the EBT list might br interested in this for a
change of pace:
I would like to see Comments about this from list members!

FROM; Bill Miller.............................Chesapeake Beach, MD.


The following article appeared on the front page
of Thursday morning's Altoona Mirror:
____________________________________________

ROCKHILL--A penny wedged against each drive wheel
on a steam locomotive will keep it from rolling, even
if the engineer opened the throttle wide, old railroaders say.

Money also is the obstacle stalling a $46 million project
to restore the narrow-gauge East Broad Top Railroad.

However, on Wednesday the project nudged a little
closer to its goal. Officials announced a $1 million grant
to stabilize a complex of maintenance shops at EBT
headquarters in Rockhill, plus the extension of a state
heritage park to include the 33-mile-long rail line.

"Every journey begins with a single step," said Randy
Cooley, executive director of the Southwestern
Pennsylvania Heritage Preservation Commission.
"But once you begin, you have inertia."

Once a hauler of local coal from Robertsdale north to the
mainline at Mount Union, the EBT now only runs summer
tourists five miles out and back from Rockhill. Still, it's
the only complete shortline railroad left in the nation,
and the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C. calls
it the finest, Cooley said.

The study calls for rehabilitating the tracks and for
refurbishing the shops, locomotives and rolling stock
to allow for excursions along the entire line and a
connection with the mainline--boosting ridership from
12,000 annually to 100,000.

EBT owner Joe Kovalchick, Indiana, PA, obtained the
Transportation Enhancement Act for the 21st Century
money by applying for it himself. He will need to put the
shop complex in a nonprofit trust to receive the public
funding, officials said.

Kovalchick's father, Nick, bought the line in the mid-1950s
to sell for scrap, but he held off the sale because of
depressed prices. He tried a tourist excursion for a local
centennial in 1960. Joe Kovalchick took over in the
mid-1960s and continued the excursions.

"It was part of our family heritage," said Kovalchick, who
said he loses money on the tourist runs.

Stabilizing the deterioration of the shops and making
improvements that might allow tourists to appreciate
some of the operation will probably cost about $2 million,
Cooley said. In the year it will take for the formalities to
acquire the TEA-21 money, agencies hope to get the rest
through matching funds from the state capital budget,
private foundations.

The shop complex includes a roundhouse for engines, a
blacksmith shop, machine shop, boiler shop, a foundry,
a car shop, a sandhouse, a coaling dock, five storage
buildings and a stone farmhouse that predates the
railroad, said Stanley Hall, who manages the operation.

The project will need a consultant to evaluate what
needs done and set priorities.

"If it's a choice between fixing a building falling in and
polishing a machine, it's obvious," said Jane Sheffield,
executive director of the Allegheny Ridge Corp., which
manages the Allegheny Ridge Heritage Park in northern
Somerset, Cambria, Blair, and now Huntingdon counties,
with the extension that includes the EBT.

As the shop stabilization proceeds, it will help build steam
to raise funds for additional work, Cooley predicted.

As the project advances, preservation agencies will
develop a business plan to ensure it can remain solvent,
relying on tourist income, sponsorships and fund raising
that cites the project as a good cause, Cooley said, in
response to a question citing current financial difficulties
of the Altoona Railroaders Memorial Museum.

"No question that as each (heritage project) gets built,
better business planning is occurring," he said.

As a coal-hauling transport line, the EBT ties in with the
themes of the 7-year-old state heritage park, which is
creating a trails path to link sites that illustrate the area's
industrial heritage of coal mining and transportation, plus
iron and steel making, Sheffield said.

Not all the sites are completed. The sites include the
gateway Coal Heritage Center, the Arcadia Theater and
Miner's Memorial Park in Windber; a gateway heritage
discovery center (on which ground was broken Wednesday),
the downtown flood museum, the Wagner-Ritter House and
the Cambria Iron Company in Johnstown; a former silk mill
in Portage; the gateway Canal Basin Park (going to bid this
summer), the Chimney Rocks Accessible Park (just opened)
and canal worker houses in Hollidaysburg; the gateway
Heritage Discovery Center (to be finished in October),
Heritage Plaza and the Southern Alleghenies Museum of
Art in Altoona.

Allegheny Ridge is working with trail groups to prepare
and open sections of trails to form the backbone of the park.

So far, the Lower Trail from Alexandria to Williamsburg with
an extension to Canoe Creek is the main completed segment.

The Allegheny Park and its new extension into Huntingdon
County are part of a Pennsylvania Mainline Canal Corridor
envisioned by the Allegheny Ridge Corp. and agencies like
the state Department of Conservation & Natural Resources.

A word from a new member ....

Karl & Edwina Kleeman <kleenc@...>
 

One can appreciate the money spent on restoring number 12 and still lament
the circus atmosphere in which she now resides. I for one appreciate the
wonderful history of this little railroad and the pride the workers took in
their equipment and their railroad.

I prefer to honor the memory of that little railroad and those people
through reasonably accurate information and restorations. I will enjoy the
new book and the fine work done by the historic society. I still am sorry
that more was not saved and I am sorry that number 12 must be a circus
engine to have value in todays society. I think this says a lot about our
society and our values.

But that is the way it is and I hope number 12 excits and gives pleasure to
lots of kids. If it were me, I would given her a little more dignity and
still would have attracted folks, not to the circus, but to a bit of
history. But I am not presumtious enough the tell them how to run their
business.

I must admit, I am not too excited about going to Tweesie, but in the end I
will probably go just to see and hear her run. But I will still exercise
my right to remember number 12 and this fine little railroad through my
videos and books provided by those who seem to care about this little piece
of history. I like it like that.

Just an old fashion sort of fellow with a tender spot for the good old
ET&WNC who does lament our current $$$$ driven value system. Karl

Trains WP&Y Article

Malcolm Marion <mmarion@...>
 

Hi everyone,

I was flipping through the new July issue of Trains magazine when I came across a letter to the editor on page 10.

The letter is from Ralph Beaumont of Paris, Ont. and highlights his memories of a trip to Skagway in 1979. It seems he was hiking in the river to where locomotives had been buried as riprap. "Someone had been mucking about with a bulldozer, and had uncovered one of the line's narrow gauge 4-6-0's. We were surprised that it wasn't just the hulk of a boiler shell and frame, but the complete locomotive still sporting pilot, smokestack, and even airpumps."

A small photo is included showing the engine down on the left side. I think I see two airpumps and can't tell if the domes are too close together for our prototypes.

Could this be a picture of our illusive #10 or 14? Could extra airpumps have been added in Seattle. I know a snowplow and different running boards were placed on the engines there.

For those with good eyes and expertise, take a look and let us hear your thoughts.

This came up on the White Pass list a month or two ago. There is no
evidence that #10 and/or #14 were scrapped or dumped in Skagway or
Whitehorse. Reliable reports are that they were returned to Seattle for
scrapping. The Army took back to Seattle everything WP&Y didn't buy.

A bunch of the old WP&Y engines and a rotary were dumped in the river at
Skagway. The engine numbers and location are documented. Two have been
pulled out and are now behind the shops.

I know a snowplow and different
running boards were placed on the engines there.
Does anyone have pictures that can be posted showing them in Seattle or
in service on WP&Y? I have photos of them after the fire.

To add more "I wonder:" to the Malcolm's thoughts...........Fran Coffey has told
me several times that he in fact stood atop of the 10 in the river. (when he
went up there to pick out the 190) By Frank, these dumped engines were the
beginnings of a breakwall. This question would now seem to add a whole lot more
umph to his story than most have given it over the passing years.


Re: Trains WP&Y Article

Bruce Pryor <bpryor@...>
 

White pass had only one inside frame 4-6-0. Here is a photo of it:

http://narrowmind.railfan.net/early_steam/62_BLW_.JPG

It has different axle spacing than #10 and #14.

I've emailed a friend in Skagway, asking if he can get some photos of
the engines still in the river.

I'll let you know what turns up, but it may take a while, if he will do
it.

Re: Photos of 10 & 14 on the WP&Y

Curtis Brookshire <curtis.brookshire@...>
 

I researched this topic in the National Archives several years ago. The
Archives has the US Army Signal Corps photo repository. They have no photos
of the ex-ET&WNC locomotives.

If we are to find definitive photos, they must come from another source.
Hope someone locates one in their collections.

Trains Magazine had a photo of Number 10 undergoing refit in Seattle prior
to shipment to Skagway. Not sure of the month (Johnny help me here), but it
was in early 1943. 10 received front end ladders and other detail changes.
I have also seen a photo of 14 prior to being scrapped in Seattle following
the roundhouse fire also showing the detail changes. Trains had a recent
article on the WP&Y which listed existing locomotives including those used
as rip-rap. I still believe the story of ET&WNC 10 being used as rip-rap as
being apocriphal.

I would love to discover some positive proof one way or the other. Keep
digging.

Michael,

So far, your bid is the best. I will bring them with me should you "win" them.
I'll also bring all of my Stemwinders back to #1 for you to copy. I'll be at
Tweetsie Friday and Saturday, but need to leave after the Saturday banquet. If
you can't get them all copied in that time frame, just take what you need back
home and send them UPS when you're done.

I thought you were in Lincolnton? When did you move to GA?

The May/June Narrow Gauge and Shortline Gazette features an Edward H. Cass

BTW, saw a slide last night of ET&WNC 210 taken around 1972 in Elizabethton.
It's in the Southern Railway black/white scheme. Had I known my friend had
that slide, I would have submitted it for publication in John's book.

Memorial Day Greetings,
