Nashville and Eastern Railroad
This is a page to launch me into further investigation. I am trying to
get some on-line documentation on the railroads located in the state
of Tennessee. I have started by using maps to locate as many railroads
as I possibly could.
This is one of the many railroads that I have discovered in Tennessee.
I am starting to document these lines so that others may enjoy them as
I intend to do over the next few years. I make no promises that this
railroad is still in existence or that any information that I provide is
accurate. This information is based solely on observation and freely
Nashville - Donelson - Mt. Juliet - Lebanon - Watertown - Gordonsville
- Baxter - Cookeville - Algood - Monterey
(With a branch from Gordonsville - Carthage)
CSX in Nashville
The Nashville and Eastern is the host railroad for the Broadway dinner
Train out of Nashville. There are also a number of special excursions
which use the Broadway dinner train equipment every year. See the
Tennessee Railroad Attractions section for more information on this.
I am in the process to going through pictures of these shortlines and
picking examples to scan and put on-line. I don't have pictures of
many of these shortlines outside of middle Tennessee. If you have
any pictures that you would like to contribute to this documentation
project, I will be happy to have your assistance. If you don't have
a way to scan them, you can send me email
to obtain an address to which you can mail a copy of your pictures. I
can't return them, however so please send copies. If you have scanned
images, I can provide a place for them to be deposited for addition to
the collection. Also if you have additional information about any of these
railroads please send me a message so that I can include it here.
I wish to thank the company of my friend (Mark Bailey), Jobsoft
Design & Development, Inc. for providing me with the space
to carry out this project
