L&N Atlanta - Knoxville Division (aka "Hook and Eye Line") and Georgia Northeastern RR (GNRR)
Posted by Anonymous on Wednesday, March 10, 2004 11:29 AM
Seeking any/all info on this fascinating former route of the L&N which ran north from Marietta, GA (where it had connected with the L&N line from Chattanooga to Atlanta) to Knoxville, TN via Canton, Tate, and Blue Ridge (all in GA) to Etowah, TN and on to Knoxville, TN, with a short branch from approx Blue Ridge, GA to Murphy,NC where it interchanged with the Southern's 'Murphy Branch'to Asheville, NC. The Georgia Northeastern is a present day shortline running north from Marietta, GA to Blue Ridge, GA. on the former L&N rails. It interchanges with the CSX in Marietta (Elizabeth) and connects with the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway in Blue Ridge, GA. Anyone out there modeling any portion of this line. Especially need info for late 40's/early 50's era. Thanks in advance!
