From the publisher:
"Numerous photographs enhance this history of railroading in the southern Appalachians. It features famous engines such as Tweetsie, Spot, and the Clinchfield Railroad's Santa Claus Special, along with rail lines large and small of the Carolinas, East Tennessee, and southwestern Virginia. The economic impact of the railroads on the logging and tourism industries is also discussed."
