Fire Destroys Valuable Records of the N.C. & St. L. Ry

Records of the last 50 years of the Nashville Chattanooga & St. Louis Ry. were destroyed this week by a fire which gutted the transportation building of the carrier at Nashville, Tenn.  The records were highly valued.


Mission Statement: The NC&StL Preservation Society will do everything in its power to promote the preservation of buildings, rolling stock, right of way and motive power; and collect, organize and preserve artifacts, history and information related to the NC&StL Railway along with the memories of those who made sure the trains got ‘to and from Dixieland’.

Furthermore, the NC&StL Preservation Society will educate the general public about the significant force for economic and political change that was the NC&StL Railway.


Annual Membership Fees are only
$20/single and $25/family.
