Default Tennessee Southern Ops??

Anyone have any current ops info on the Tennessee Southern around Columbia or Mt. Pleasant, TN. I've got some free time over that way on Wednesday.

The local on the line from Columbia to Florence, AL is based in Lawrenceburg, TN. The day crew there is on duty at 0600 M-F, and will make a turn to Columbia and back. You can expect to find them northbound working the yard at Mt. Pleasant around 0745 or so on weekdays. Follow them up to the interchange at Columbia and back south, and you have a nice day. Best scenery is between Mt. Pleasant and Lawrenceburg, in my opinion.

The local to Pulaski is based in Columbia, and runs 2-3 days a week on an as-needed schedule.

I cannot recommend trying to stop in at the office at Mt. Pleasant -- they have long been intolerant of visitors, and it continues to this day. However, I received nothing but friendly waves from the crew on my visit a couple of months ago.
