East Tennessee Railway

Tennessee shortline

The East Tennessee Railway is a shortline linking industry in Elizabethton, Tennessee, to connections with CSX Transportation and Norfolk Southern in Johnson City, Tennessee, some 11 miles away. This section was the former dual-gauge operations of the venerable East Tennessee & Western North Carolina. Since 1996, the current pike has been owned by Genesee and Wyoming Industries, an international operator of short line and regional railroads. The road services multiple industries along the line using two diesel locomotives painted in a livery reminiscent of the Southern Railway.
