Re: Hello

Thanks for the replies.
Here is the shirt design I have. It is available in t-shirt, long sleeve t, sweatshirt and hoodie...in various colors. T-shirts start at $23 and the other types cost more.
Unfortunately, I don't think they could be received before Christmas due to the way the printing company works.
Here is a link to order if any of you are interested. https://www.bonfire.com/etampwnc/
If this goes well, I would look to make some more designs and ET&WNC products.

Ryan,
Really good work.
I'd love to see your t-shirt design. It's funny how many years have gone by with no ET&WNC swag, and we're now in a golden age for that, with several shirts and such being produced today!

Welcome Ryan!

That's some spectacular fall footage you've posted. Love seeing those bridges in their settings at this time of the year.

Keep it up!

Hello all,
I am new to this group. I am a long time fan of the ET&WNC. I have a long time connection to the Doe River Gorge area in particular. I have been visiting that section regularly for over 30 years. I used to play on the old rusting steam engine on the property that had been used by the Hillbilly World amusement part that operated there. I just absolutely love that section of the railroad (I love it all but specifically that section).
I do a lot of photography and drone video. I have some photos/videos that I was told you all would likely enjoy, and I wanted to share them with you. I do all my photography and video under the name Above Ground Media. We have a Facebook page and Youtube channel. I have posted lots of Doe River Gorge content to the Facebook page over the years.
Here is the video that will likely interest you the most. This is drone video done during prime fall colors of the DRG trestles and Pardee point area. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tK-EFXNo0bo
I have a couple other DRG videos but they don't really show any railroad stuff. The first one just kind of shows the DRG camp https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bqIIxmVndi8
Second one is a video I made for the camp to promote their corn maze they did this fall https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xTvZqhmMaH8
 
Sorry for all the links :)
Here is a link to our facebook page that has lots of other DRG photography we've posted over the years (there is lots of other non DRG stuff too). https://www.facebook.com/AboveGroundDrones
 
I am also working on an ET&WNC shirt design that I will be selling online. I will send another email out with links to that once it is ready.
 
Thanks and I am glad to have found this group,

Just got mine in the mail yesterday. Keep in mind, it's still got the 'in the bag' look as I took this photo:


The embroidery work was good. I'd asked Dal if he could make hats with this and he replied that this was likely going to be next (I asked to make them on adjustable hats that can adjust to bigger noggins like mine; fingers crossed). If he made hats with the logo above that would fit, I'd probably buy extra ones just in case!
I'm not shilling for Dal, I don't know him other than emails we've swapped on his products, but he's been very receptive to ET&WNC swag. Could someone make a mention of his gear in the next newsletter maybe?
I think we should let others know, as I can't be the only person out there who'd buy this stuff if they were aware of it.

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.

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

Re: TandT #14 on ebay

Brian Kopp
 

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.
