Three cars of stretched ET lettering, one of LR stretched lettering and one of the older block lettering. The HO has caboose lettering as well as some tank car lettering. The O Scale set just has the four stretched and one block.

How many cars can be done with each sheet?

I am very pleased to announce that I now have white HO and O scale freight decals back in stock. $10 a sheet plus $2 shipping. I also had a few sets of each done in gold leaf. This will allow pretty close lettering for passenger cars and engines. These are $12 a sheet due to increased cost of the ink. Contact me here or at johnnyg at boone dot net if you want to order. I know some of you have been waiting a while for these to get back in stock.

Hi Lee,
Glad you liked my “horsing around” in On30 on our favorite rail road.
Got the kit for the Model T Ford from Keith Wiseman models. He has several in actual 1:48 scale. They are white metal kits. Hope this helps. Doc Tom

Old Blue ties up Tweetsie Tracks.

Tom Grabenstein
 



Harry's ancient model T “hack” blew its 20 hp engine awhile back transporting luggage from Linville Depot to Esceola Lodge on the ET&WNC R.R.


He rented out “Old Blue” the horse to drag it in for repairs.

Seems “Blue’s” 1 horse power engine pooped out right at a grade crossing on the ET&WNC  west of the depot. 

Now the iron horse is stuck and no amount of verbal encouragement is likely to get things moving again.

Thanks for looking. Doc Tom


Re: color

The interior color was Pearl Grey. The 11 had passenger trucks. I have seen a photo of excursion 13 with wood bolstered freight trucks.

What color were the interiors and exteriors of the excursion cars.  Did they have McCord trucks or passenger car trucks

Subject: [ETWNC] "Bull O'Woods" makes an appearance in Linville North Carolina.
 
“Bull O’ Woods”, or in flat lander English “Bull of the Woods”, makes an appearance at the Linville Depot and rail road yard (such as it is). This ancient 19th century Climax is kept running by one of the logging railroads near Linville North Carolina. It will make a few dollars for the outfit by dropping a load of logs for the East Tennessee and Western North Carolina RR by way of a little used spur track outside of Linville.



The logs will head down the line to the sawmills and furniture factories served by the ET & WNC. The finished products will fetch a lot more dollars when shipped and sold to the good folks of the Eastern USA.


Thanks for looking.
