Copyright 2009. Second Printing July 2010. Published by Author’s Corner, LLC.

The history of the Nashville, Chattanooga & St. Louis Railway spanned 112 years. Its infancy sprang from an era when railroading replaced foot, horseback, the wagon, and the flatboat as the primary means of transporting goods.

There was an allure to the depots of the Nashville, Chattanooga & St. Louis Railway. A station on the NC&St.L was a busy, noisy, and fascinating place. People and trains would come and go as baggage, mail, and freight moved back-and-forth between platforms and trains. Travelers hurried to make their way to their departing trains or to make connections between trains on which they had just arrived and those going on to farther destinations. This book includes and in-depth history of the NC&St.L Railway from 1845 to 1957, including detailed analysis of the architecture of railroad stations and terminals of the NC&St.L. 313 pages.
