This train also came to Boone but its actual name was East Tennessee @ Western North Carolina railroad ([email protected]). If you want to read about the history of the Tweetise railraod and where it went get the book Tweetsie Country by Mallory hope Ferrell ISBN # 0-87108-082-6

Just curious, are you doing this project? If so, what scale?
(I don't get into model railroads per say but use a lot of wargaming miniatures and I've used some of the railroad stuff for modern, retro-modern skirmishes)
