Hmm. They make ten-wheeler 11 in wartime black, 12 in black and the 50th anniversary paint from 1938, as well as 14 in green.
Not one car factory made with ET&WNC lettering, though. Why is that? I'm in the process of building a ET&WNC-theme On30 layout and lettering all these cars with decals that I can no longer find has been quite a chore indeed. Would have been so cool to be able to buy boxcars with proper ET&WNC markings out of the box. Just sayin'.

The problem with ET&WNC coaches, they used second-hand stuff from a New England 3-footer after they got rid of all their other stuff in the 30s. Nobody makes good replicas of those coaches.
So even with the Deerfield kits, you're modeling a pre-war consist.
I have painted/decalled/weathered a AMS coach for ET&WNC but I'd like a far more accurate representation someday of the wartime coaches.

Sure looks nice coupled to a wartime black ten-wheeler, I have 4 of the locos, representing all three of the 'basic black' locos the ET&WNC had in WW2, and also # 14 in green as I just liked that paint scheme so much...

BTW, I numbered this 23 as I saw that coach in person when I was a kid, it was off it's trucks and abandoned as the "Tweetsie Diner" in Newland, NC.
