Funny thing about the Bigfoot.


Hi Lee,

Agree, my Big Foot is way out of place geogrphically.  But he's photogenic.  :2t:

When I was a young family doctor working in the mountains of East Tennesse,
people would call me in the middle of the night to report "haint" sightings in their homes.

They would ask me as a "learned man" if these really existed.

Who was I to disagree on a moonless night up in the "hollers",
with the wind howling coming down off the mountain.

I really liked your Halloween Haints you posted a while back.
Very believable.

Doc Tom

Doc and Lee,

I can assure you, as a resident of the Blue Ridge
(2hrs or so from Johnson City)
Sasquatch is a thing here. 

Maybe he hasn't migrated to East Tennessee yet. 
He is as real as the Chem Trails.

:w:

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

Hi Lee.

Yes, that will be a challenge and scratchbuilt.

I will do a foam core board mockup first to see how it fits,
and then use styrene to build the depot.

I am looking forward to visiting the restored depot in NC also.

I haven't been to that area since 2005.

I so badly want to get back there to see the museum with that depot and caboose 505...

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
