Conasauga River Lumber Company

clc_state The Conasauga River Lumber Company operated a sawmill at Conasauga, Tn. The small mill operation interchanged with the Louisville & Nashville and operated a two-truck Shay built by Lima. During L&N steam specials on the famed "Hook and Eye" route in the early 1960s, the Shay was often brought out to the main line and its whistle would be harmonized with the road engine.
