Chattanooga's ties to railroading go back to the mid - 1800s when the first rail lines reached the city. At one time, eight railroad companies served the area. After WWII most steam locomotives vanished from the railroad scene. By 1970 Chattanooga had only 4 passenger train departures daily, and often the crew outnumbered paying customers on the trains. Southern's Terminal Station was converted into a hotel with some of the rooms located in former railroad passenger cars. Preserving this railroad atmosphere were the people who contributed their time, talents, and resources as the members of the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum. Soft cover.
