Biographical/Historical Note

The East Tennessee and Western North Carolina Railroad, affectionately called the "Tweetsie" in reference to the sound of its steam whistles, was primarily a narrow gauge railroad established in 1866 for the purpose of serving the mines at Cranberry, North Carolina. The narrow gauge portion of the ET&WNC was abandoned in 1950, however the standard gauge segment of the line from Johnson City to Elizabethton, Tennessee still exists today as the East Tennessee Railway.
