Wrong Railroad

December 2023
1min read

In the interest of historical accuracy, I’d like to make a small correction to Clarence W. Johnson’s letter in the April/May issue. I believe the railroad involved, the N.C. & St. L., was the Nashville, Chattanooga, & St. Louis Railway, not the North Carolina and St. Louis. Known as The Dixie Line, it was absorbed into the Louisville & Nashville in 1957 and is now part of the Seaboard System.

We hope you enjoy our work.
