    • Yup, yer rite, Dave...    The serifs would need to be added......   File attached from playing around..

    • The Georgia font, at least the version I have, doesn't have the serifs on the top of the A.

      A web search shows the examples of the URW Antigua also doesn't have the Serifs.

       

      I may have to draw it out.

       

      Thanks Stan, guys.

    • Hi Dave...   Try these fonts 

      Georgia

      URWAntiquaTExbold

       

      They could be part of the RRRoman line but look more like the 2 above...

      Holler if you need them.  I can copy them to you in an email..   

       

      The "&" is a special character...  I don't think I've seen that in a "modern" font.  You may have to "draw" the "&"...   Here's a special one that I had to "draw"  

       

      I did a further search and came up with this font for the "&"...  It's very close...    Impossibilium BRK    Easily edited with Photo shop to match the tender...

    • A more flat on picture, albeit a blurrier one too.

    • Kevin, I guess you cannot see the photo posted for some reason.

       

      Thanks Al.

    • Is there a photo of the font you're looking at? 

       

      Later,

    • David,

       

      I would think a variant of Railroad Roman. you could try Ben Coffman's Site. he has several variations.

    • I was wondering if any of you graphics people out there can identify the fonts used on the tender and locomotive.

       

      It would be easier for me if I could just print out what I want, instead of having to draw it up.

       

      Thanks

    • Well if Charles ever does come back he may be interested in searching for "Along the ET&WNC" by Johnny Graybeal, a series of six volumes detailing everything anyone ever wanted to know about the ET&WNC. Volumes 1 and 2 deal with all of the locomotives, Volume 3 deals with the Depots, Volume 4 & 5 deals with all of the Freight Cars and Volume 6 deals with the Passenger cars. A fantastic resource for anyone really interested in the ET&WNC. There is also Mallory Hope Ferrell's Tweetsie Country.

    • I wonder if Charles has put down the book he purchased, and looked at the models of that railroad's equipment, which Bachmann produced, and still has in their catalogue...

        I think he has run off, and forgot that he posted here....

    • Welcome aboard Charles. I'll be looking forward to your build and plenty of pics. We like to sit back with a bowl of popcorn and watch your progress.

      This is my first post so I hope it is the correct place.  I am modeling ET&WNC Narrow Gauge.  Currently working on a Baldwin 4-6-0 from 1916. 

      While doing research I found a book I wanted called "Blue Ridge Stemwinder: An Illustrated History of the East Tennessee & Western North Carolina Railroad and the Linville River Railway".  The sellers I found online must think it is a collector's item and want north of $200 for a copy.  I finally searched for the publisher and found that they still have copies for sale for $60 (http://overmtn.com).  Online ordering doesn't seem to work.  I ordered by phone.  It has lists, photos, and drawings of all of the rolling stock for the ET&WNC.  Great resource.
