I know the guy (through email) who currently owns the MR project Clinchfield railroad. Don't know if it would help much, but if you want to get in touch with him, let me know in email and I'll forward you his address. gerryleone@earthlink.net

Oops, I forgot one other source. In the mid 70's RMC did a series on the V&O railroad. During one of the articles, they showed several scenes on the Clinchfield, including how the coal brnches were shifted. I have the magazines, but I do not where at this time. If you want copies, E-mail me and I will try to find them and send you copies. My E-mail address is superdash@geotec.net.

Hello, I am new to this web site. There was a book published a few years ago titled "Clinchfield". It has some excellent pictorials that depict the entire Clinchfield route and the various yards. It can probably be found on E-bay or perhaps some of the used book ads in Model Railroader or RMC. Hope this helps.

Model Railroader did a project railroad on the Clichfield that featured the yard at Dante and key structures (church, YMCA, etc.). They also had plans for the Tweetsie that featured the Yard at Elkhorn. I have the articles and could photo copy and fax or e-mail them. As far as the area in between more info would be needed(size,distance, and shape of benchwork, staging areas(if any)etc.
