My son-in-law lives in Jonesborough, Tn -- but where does the Crescent Line
run to and from? Is it part of old V&SW? Thanks,

> This evening about 7 pm a different train than usual went west. 98 %

> Most of the trailers were set on cars only good for trailers. They had

> Does anyone have any information as to just what is going on?
