Question about CC&O in Johnson City

Chris Ford
 

Gang,

Hope your Thanksgiving was good, and I'm wishing all a safe and merry Christmas Season.

I got this following email, and while it is technically not an ET&WNC question, it is related to Johnson City's yard and the CC&O. Here's the question, anyone have any ideas about an answer? If so, I'll pass those along to the questioner. If this is not considered relevant enough for this forum let me know and I'll push it out to another group or have the original questioner push it.

Thanks, and have a great (albeit cold) week!


Here's the question....
 
I have a Johnson City railroad question and I thought I would ask you to see if anyone in your group may know.
It is not a ETWNC question, but rather a CC&O question.
The CC&O Johnson City Yard and siding was called Barrett.
Would anyone in your group/membership know how Barrett received its name?

Thanks.

Thanks again!

It stuck out to me as it would if it were painted pink....

Yes it had air brakes. I would assume they had the same as the rest of the cars.

Did caboose 205 have air brakes, if so what kind KC?

Re: TandT #14 on ebay

I have the T and T ET&WNC #12 with the mid-era paint scheme (thanks again Johnny G). It is in my display case since I currently model a short-lived 1880s southwest NG line. If I ever get the time I would remotor, regear, re-weight, and re-light this engine. The Roundbell/Locodoc HOn3 conversion webpage has a good write-up on the issues and an example approach to fix it..... 

I love these engines and I am glad I have one for display. It is a stand-out in my little sea of brass locos. Can you pick out the ET&WNC engine?

Re: TandT #14 on ebay

I have heard the same thing from the two other owners of these engines. 
Classic limited brass run; they look great, don't run for beans, and have to be totally rebuilt to run well.
So sad for what they cost...

Brian,

The George L Carter railroad museum bought  a few of them for our ET&WNC layout a few years ago.

In my humble opinion I would steer clear of it. To install DCC cost us a small fortune and they are not

really good runners. We even added more pickups on non pickup wheels and they still didn't run

that well. Fred Alsop can probably give you more information on the Train and Trooper engines. If 

anyone has had better luck with these please chime in.

Re: ET&WNC #’s 209 and 210 move a coal train in HO. #’s

Lee Bishop
 

I built 209 out of an Atlas HO scale undecorated locomotive many years ago, using an article I found in a magazine about proper detailing of a central of Georgia RS3.
I'd love to build one in O scale, even though I don't model that timeframe.
I would, however, recommend using Southern RR decals. If you get a set that has all the subsidiary line road names, you can make the W in the ET&WNC with 2 Vs and the using the ampersand from the Savanah and Atlanta road name. That's what I did in HO, and would do again in O.
Not sure if I'd model it with the earlier white tuxedo stripe or the latter orange stripe, though...

Dean,

This is beautiful and a nice mini tutorial on colorizing old photos. I will try to incorporate these ideas in On30 as my layout grows. Thank you. Dr Tom.

I had too much fun colorizing a black and white photo of downtown Johnson City today. The 1920's scene is from the book, "Greater Johnson City: A Pictorial History," by Ray Stahl,   I scanned the photo, adjusted it to the size I needed, and printed it on matte photo paper. I then flipped the photo to create the other side of the building.  After coloring the photos with pan pastels and chalks, I mounted them on the backdrop next to Exum Furniture.  It was a great rainy day project. I still have some final detailing to do, but the scene is coming along.
