Here are some new shots. The layout is in the White River Narrow Gauge modelling calendar this year (for April), will be in the 2020 On30 Annual and should be in RMC this year...













Notice the number plate on 9 above. I have photos of the actual number plates for ET&WNC 9, 11 and 12, all of which still exist. I then printed them in O scale and mounted them over the so-so quality plates Bachmann puts on their locomotives...

Playing around with the camera again last night:

Caboose 505 trails the afternoon freight to Johnson City, Tennessee while passing through the rural community of Sadie. At the Grindstaff store, the old men ponder the "war across the water," circa 1943...


Meanwhile, ten-wheeler # 12 drifts past the Ensor farm at Sadie, Tennessee one late sweltering afternoon in August, 1943, heading for Johnson City and a much-needed meal for the crew:

Beautiful modeling and photos. That’s a terrific lineup of locomotives.

Congratulations on having your work published.

Ever since the pandemic forced us all indoors, I’ve been mostly either working from home, doing whatever house cleaning chores my wife comes up with, or working on these.



They’re laser kits made by On30IMA. They’re quite challenging to work on as a lot of it you just have to figure out on your own, so I built only one at first, to use as a guide to building the rest. I’m glad I did that. The remaining 4 I have (two more shorties and two ‘normal’ length) were done in an assembly line manner, all repetitive tasks for each type of part for each car. Now, the subassemblies are done and I need to put them all together into the shape of ET&WNC hopper cars. I’ll be happy when these are done, as I’ve always wanted some of the Tweetsie’s ubiquitous wood hoppers but before recently nobody made them in O scale. There are at least two people I know who’ll make them as 3D prints, but only in O scale. Heck, I’d have paid a premium price for these as one piece, but nobody wanted to take the money. The kits aren’t exactly cheap, but once they’re done, I think they’ll be worth it. Only one (the near on in this photo) will not be carrying a load. They need weights and there’s NO place to put them but inside without being seen. So I did the detailed interior bottoms of the one, and the rest will permanently carry coal loads.

Here are some more shots of the new hoppers. They were not easy builds but now they're here, I am glad I handled the expense and effort!

Great job on some distinctive rolling stock.

You know that I like those hopper kits Lee.
I hope you read the PDF instruction sheet on the website with all the details.
You can add lead sheet for weight under the floors before assembly. Works great.
Good photos.

Not long ago, I finished a scratch built structure, based on pre-WW2 photos of a store at Carter, TN. It has lighting and a full interior, and I like how it turned out. I'd been wanting to replace the Woodland Scenics pre-built structure I'd had on the same spot for a while now. So now, other than a resin Quonset hut and two Grandt Line small depot kits, all my structures are scratch built!

Very nice.
Great interior detailing and that rusty roof looks realistic.
