Tennessee Narrow Gauge DVD
This program represents the definitive visual experience on the last active narrow gauge railroad in the Blue Ridge. These films are the property of the ET&WNC Historical Society. The society approached A&R to help them produce these videos. It didn't take us long to say "yes". Tape ET-1 represents the "Tweetsie" during 1942 and 1943, when in addition to wartime freight traffic, the line was operating mandatory passenger service for the warboard to handle commuter traffic to and from the defense plants at Port Rayon. Follow the little ten-wheelers from Johnson City yard, through Elizabethton, Hampton, Blevins, Roan Mountain and Elk Park to Cranberry. Experience the raw beauty of the Doe River Gorge. Watch the passenger consists being wyed at Cranberry and Port Rayon, freight crews switching along the line and two "crew members" with cameras! Our crew returned in 1949, with but a year left until abandonment. The passenger service and the little line is struggling to stay solvent. But the same beautiful scenery and locomotives and the same friendly crews make our final visit as rewarding as the first. Don't miss these tapes- they are a wonderful experience!
