Tom,

I have wanted to do something like what you did with the wires, and like the others have said, looks good and something to bookmark. Thanks.

Agree "Tweetsie" is too cutesy for this hair ball.

The good old boys in the Blue Ridge have been working hard to get the first structure built on the Linville LDE.



I am trying to re-create this scene from Linville in 1920 on the ET &WNC RR. I thought I would start with the simplest structure.... the line side shed



I found it on eBay and thought it was a nifty stand in for the little shed.







Thanks for looking. Tom

Santa drops off some goodies at Linville.

Santee Claus just visited the Gandy Dancers at the On30 Layout Design Element (LDE) in Linville on the East Tennessee and Western North Carolina RR. He left them some fine imported On30 track (Peco from Merry ole England) and the guys were ecstatic.



There was some Christmas cheer in that bag of his as well.......



.....and the boys merrily went about laying the track for the entire LDE without a complaint.





Next up is connecting the dropped wires to the bus wires and getting #11 moving under her own power.

Thanks for looking.Merry Christmas.

Doc Tom

Geraldo never liked to work.




Least of all, did he want to shovel coal on a hot summer’s day? Naaaah.






He was quite content to while away his time watching trains go by his shack along the ET &WNC mainline up in the mountains.



Thanks for looking and resting a spell with Geraldo.

The New Tank at Linville.

Dewey and Raylan inspect the new water tank at the Linville Depot site on the ET &WNC R.R.. Well its not leaking and holds water well.








Number 11 will get a drink soon……when these guys quit mugging for the camera.




These overall shots show the empty lot where the Linville Depot will go and there is a definite need to plant trees to get ……..








to this look that I am trying to achieve.



Thanks for looking. Doc Tom
