Reviving History: Displaying the ET&WNC 4-6-0 Ten Wheeler Locomotive

The East Tennessee & Western North Carolina (ET&WNC) 4-6-0 Ten Wheeler locomotive was built by the Baldwin Locomotive Works in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1917. It was one of three locomotives of its type purchased by the ET&WNC to transport passengers and freight across the rugged mountain terrain of the southeastern United States.



The ET&WNC was a narrow-gauge railway that operated in the Appalachian Mountains of western North Carolina and eastern Tennessee. It was originally built in the late 1800s to transport timber and other natural resources from the mountains to nearby cities and towns. Over time, the railway expanded to serve a variety of industries, including mining, agriculture, and tourism.

The Ten Wheeler locomotive was a powerful steam engine that could reach speeds of up to 50 miles per hour while hauling heavy loads up steep grades. It was a popular sight in the region and was used for many years until it was retired from service in the mid-1950s.



Today, the ET&WNC is no longer in operation, but its legacy lives on through historical societies, museums, and model train enthusiasts. The MOC-138153 model train is a tribute to this iconic locomotive and a testament to the enduring fascination with the history and engineering of these powerful machines.

In order to pay homage to this historic locomotive and its importance to the region, we have recreated the ET&WNC 4-6-0 Ten Wheeler as a building block model. Our model captures the unique design and engineering of the original locomotive while providing a fun and engaging building experience for model train enthusiasts and history buffs alike.

By creating this building block model, we hope to inspire a new generation of railway enthusiasts and to keep the legacy of the ET&WNC 4-6-0 Ten Wheeler alive for years to come.

The East Tennessee & Western North Carolina Railroad (ET&WNC) was a narrow-gauge railway that operated in the southeastern United States during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It served the mountainous regions of eastern Tennessee and western North Carolina, running from Johnson City, Tennessee to Boone, North Carolina.


The ET&WNC was initially constructed in the late 1800s to transport timber and other natural resources from the Appalachian Mountains to larger markets in the eastern United States. The railway was primarily used to transport timber, but it also transported passengers and other goods, such as iron and agricultural products.

The railway was built through rugged and mountainous terrain, which presented significant challenges to construction crews. However, the line proved to be profitable and played an essential role in the growth and development of the local economy. The ET&WNC provided access to markets that were previously inaccessible, enabling the growth of industries such as mining and logging.



The ET&WNC railroad was particularly significant to the towns and cities along its route. The railway provided these communities with a vital link to the outside world, and it was essential for transportation, commerce, and communication. The railway also played a significant role in the development of the tourism industry in the region, as it provided access to scenic and recreational destinations such as the Appalachian Trail, Grandfather Mountain, and Linville Caverns.



The impact of the ET&WNC on the local economy and culture was significant. The railway provided jobs and economic opportunities to the region, and it helped to shape the character and identity of the communities it served. Today, the legacy of the ET&WNC is preserved through historical societies and museums, which celebrate the history and culture of the region and its railway.
