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,

> two years.


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

> trailers on flat cars. And a couple of 40 foot boxes. Half of the trailers

> were marked with "UPS". We have never seen a train of almost all trailers

> on flat cars.


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

> slots for the wheels and a fifth wheel for holding the trailer to the car.


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