      Narrow Gauge Ten Wheeler

      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.

      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.

      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....

      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.
