Title: Okay, FOUR 4-6-0s marked for the ET&WNC but no cars?
Post by: p51 on November 07, 2017, 03:15:09 PM
I can't recall if I brought this up or not here already, but I had an op session on my layout and someone asked why Bachmann doesn't make any ET&WNC-lettered cars?
There are four ET&WNC lettered ten-wheelers (11 in black, 12 in green/gold and black, and 14 is green-gold) but not a single car lettered for the same railroad?  ???
Some of the cars aren't translatable to the ET&WNC but some would make good representational cars (for example, the real ET&WNC boxcars were almost 40 feet long). The tank cars, for example, are very close to the ones used to haul gasoline.
I had to buy a lot of decals for my layout, and it would have been great to have had a few RTR cars marked for my favorite RR, especially as so many locos are available with that road name!

Deerfield River Productions and Wiseman models have kits for ET&WNC rolling stock, for what it's worth.

There is a good article about ET&WNC passenger car kits by Dearfield in the 2017 0n30 review .
They have full size cars and conversion kits based on the JS cars from Bachmann.

Maybe I didn't explain myself. I'm very familiar with Deerfield laser, as photos of my own build of their 505 caboose kit is on their own website... My own layout is in the 2017 On30 Annual, so yeah, I saw that article.
I meant Bachmann stock stuff in ET&WNC markings. Why not, especially when they have 4 different 4-6-0s available in ET&WNC markings?
Heck, I'd probably buy some rolling stock if they offered it in ET&WNC markings, even though I have all the rolling stock I need.

I get your drift.
I wandered also when the ten wheelers came out.
I had a #12 but because of the lack of cars i swapped it for an unpainted one with a friend of mine.
He is making his own cars using a cutting plotter.
