The ET&WNC built four open-air excursion cars numbered 11 through 14. Working from plans of car 11 and photos of cars 12 through 14 we have developed two versions of this car. This model is for car 11.
The following detail parts will be needed to complete the model:
- Couplers (Kadee #713 or #714)
- 5′ Passenger Trucks (Blackstone B370107)
- Brake wheel (your choice)
- Grab Irons (0.012 Wire or Tichy)
- 8 – 24″ Straight
- Brake Detail
- Truss Rods
Due to the fact that 3d printing is a relatively new and in many ways experimental manufacturing technology and the fact that many of the models I manufacture push the limits on what is able to be manufactured, not all models can be successfully printed every time. Every effort is made to avoid any issues during the design phase, however, from time to time we do have unforeseen issues during the manufacturing process. We (Shapeways and I) appreciate your patience when issues do occur.
Questions and answers of the customers
Q Was this for the excursion line now in Doe River Gorge or for the actual railroad and what year where they built?A These were built by the Actual ET&WNC, not the excursion line. I am not sure on the year, plans and photos were provided by Johnny Graybeal and Bill Miller.
