Re: EBT LOCO SHOP CAR SHOPS REMOVED THE ROOF TO SHOW WHERE THE TRACKS SHOULD BE!

Great looking modeled complex! 👍
Narrow gauge modeling in N.C.
The tracks too the right are for car repair and actual car storage!
The two tracks in the center are for the locomotives repairs.
The car repair shop contained all the wood working tools, all the machines for working on the locomotive and steel cars were located in the left hand side of the structure.
The EBT was a complete entity in its own little place.
My structure when complete will have tracks for all the repairs the railroad will need to do! Well at least look like they could.
Shop cars were used to move deck planks for the flat cars and boxes.
By the twenties most of the wood cars had been faded out of service and the car repair shop was used mainly for storage.
Most of the narrow gauge railroads
Had to be self sufficient in all ways! The EBT built all of their steel hopper and box cars along with the steel flats starting around 1913 ! They purchased the first cars then started building their own.
Just a little bit more information to cloud everyone’s minds.
