Today, trailers are sometimes moved with a wrecker (tow truck) rather
than by using the fifth wheel. Could that have been the secret?

Larry,

It certainly must have been an interesting process to watch, that's for sure. Maybe
someday, someone will step forward with some info. from someones estate or something?

I've put you in the survey for 1 car in HOn3. If interested in any Private Road Name
rolling stock, HO scale, let me know and I'll send you my list.

Thanks,

I too have been hunting for information on the unloading facilities and havn't
found out anything. As John Waite said, the photos don't exsist. Boy, I wish
they did. Something else was probably at the ramp, given the style of the cars.
There had to be some kind of hoist the lower the kingpin end of the trailer to the
car. Unlike today, there weren't any hitches at the same height as the trailer
floor and the bogies were in an upright position when being carried by the
flatcars. Just food for thought. Take a look at the January, 1999, MRG at what I
did to a Vulcan Hobbies version of the Tweetsie trailer.

To throw a bit of history into all of this, the ET&WNC had a total of
three
of these cars. In fact, one of the cars was longer than the other two,
to
allow for a longer trailer. There were only two ramps that I know of, in
Johnson City and Boone. Like John Waite, I do not know exactly what they
looked like. A dead end track up to a ramp would make sense. I am
interested in the HO n3 version, but like the man earlier, seeing is
believing. Everything Jim has done before has looked good , but I will
admit I haven't bought any. Too many other things take my money, like a
house.

<Potentially about three if it all looks good. Oh yes in HOn3.
Honestly speaking, I don't want any until I see the kit. Not trying to
be smart, but this is an old resin buying guideline of mine from years
of military modeling. I've bought a lot and would only have bought
about 60% of the ones I purchased sight unseen were it mine to look at
first. I've seen the other Smoky Mountain kits and the have looked
really nice. I just seem to end up with the one that sat in a UPS
truck in August for 15 hours and strain relieved itself into a bunch
of warped parts if I just order one blind. His kits are highly touted
so I doubt seriously there would be a problem.>

Johnny,

Many thanks, 1 car in HOn3. If you should somehow come across any data on
the
loading/unloading facilities, please advise? Are there any photos or
drawings
of the piggyback flat cars that you know of?

To throw a bit of history into all of this, the ET&WNC had a total of
three
of these cars. In fact, one of the cars was longer than the other
two,
to
allow for a longer trailer. There were only two ramps that I know of,
in
Johnson City and Boone. Like John Waite, I do not know exactly what
they
looked like. A dead end track up to a ramp would make sense. I am
interested in the HO n3 version, but like the man earlier, seeing is
believing. Everything Jim has done before has looked good , but I
will
admit I haven't bought any. Too many other things take my money, like
a
house.

I'm posting this in as many places as I can think of, including the AOL
MRR board, thanks to Bob Eckerfield's help. How many would you like to
get, and what scale?
