Beginning construction in the mountains of post?Civil War Tennessee, the East Tennessee and Western North Carolina Railroad Company was known locally as the Eat Taters and Wear No Clothes railroad. Narrow gauge operations began in 1881 and after nearly 60 years of operation, developing interstate highway systems and the torrential rains of 1940 worked to bring about the railroad?s demise. Following a series of purchases and acquisitions (singing cowboy Gene Autry once owned an ET and WNC locomotive) the railroad was resurrected in 1956 going on to become one of North Carolina?s favorite travel attractions.Features include: ?4-6-0 steam locomotive with operating headlight smoke and speed-synchronized sound?2 Passenger coaches with lighted interiors?8'2" x 4'3" oval of track?Power pack and speed controller?Illustrated Bach Man instruction manual and DVD format video instructions
