Default Nashville & Eastern Update

Just an FYI for folks who might be heading to check out N&E from Nashville East.

I was just in that area again on Wednesday and Thursday.

Wednesday I caught the train at Monterey, TN loading sand. It then departed around 1:15 p.m. heading west. I chased it through Baxter, TN before breaking off for Nashville.

Thursday. In route back to NC I caught word on the scanner that the #8573 was at the 46 Milepost (near Watertown). I jumped off I-40 and backtracked to Watertown, TN....managed to catch up to the train just west of there. POwer was again the LMX #8573 and N&E #8531. On this day I caught him at Watertown around 11:15 a.m. N&E does talk to dispatch on the scanner which makes them a lot easier to locate.

Asheville, NC
