    • 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?

    • 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.

    • Hey there! Looking forward to seeing your project.

    • Welcome Charles, there is a ton of knowledge here too!

      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.

    • On the speakers, you might be able to/want to use the lower profile FRS7's, which while a 2.5" speaker, often will fit in less space.

    • Thanks, Jon. These are great! You were correct--I didn't have the wiring schematic when I tore into mine. 

       

      With regard to your question about which speaker, I'm doing an LGB mogul right now with one of these in the smokebox. Don't laugh, but the steam dome off of a Bachmann Big Hauler makes a fantastic enclosure for it! It's a 4-ohm speaker, so I'm pairing it in series with another 4-ohm speaker in the tender. I had a 2.5" Visaton speaker in there at first, but the Visaton drowned out the smokebox speaker. I switched to a 1 3/4" 4-ohm speaker that was in the tender from its original owner, built an enclosure from a plastic baby food container, and the combination of those two speakers sounds fantastic. I've got a Tsunami2 decoder in this loco, so I was able to adjust the EQ to really get the most (to my ears) out of these. 

       

      The TCS decoder I'll be putting in my C-19 has two speaker outputs, so I'll likely go with the 2" Visaton speakers I've used in some other projects. I'll probably do the same thing as with the mogul--one speaker in the boiler, one in the tender.
