FYI, if you see the March 2021 issue of Model Railroader, I have a photo of this layout in the Trackside Photos section. I screwed up in the caption and it auto-corrected to "Ashley" instead of Lee, but otherwise it's all correct.
I'd been wanting get my work in MT ever since I was a little kid, a real dream come true!

Yesterday, I realized I had the right kinds of pilots for my ten-wheelers they carried in the 30s and 40s, in the spare parts package. I hadn't known that before and was pondering scratch building the right kind of wood pilot they carried in the war and pre-war years. Clearly, I was happy I didn't have to do that, and also angry I didn't know that earlier. An hour of paint and weathering, and now ET&WNC 9, 11 and 12 all have the right pilots!

Here, you can see what they'd carried up to yesterday, boilertube pilots that were correct for the final days of the narrow gauge era on the RR:

Your Trackside Photo looks good. And don't worry about the typo; one of the other photos on that page says Broadway Limited made a BL-2, the other calls F-units E-7s.

Great work there Lee, always a pleasure to see photos of your layout as it combines WW2 era with railroads.

I saw your Trackside Photo in MR and recognized it right away. Excellent work. Iím happy to see you getting the recognition.

I finished a 3D print of a ET&WNC hopper car, which is coupled to a wood kit of the same type of car. These are great looking cars and I'm looking forward to ordering and completing two more of them:
