One Rail Region: A United South



Something to remember:

"Tennesseans considered railroads as early as 1827, when a rail
connection between the
Hiawassee and Coosa River was proposed."

"By 1860 Tennessee had completed 1,197 miles of track, which represented
about 13 percent of the South's total of 9,167 miles."


Nashville is still connected to the rest of the South (and North) by rail.
You'll just need to hop a freighter to get anywhere.

  1. Railex 5 day non-stop private coast-to-coast railway transport with state of the art quality controlled distribution centers and real-time GPS inventory tracking is the greener alternative to refrigerated trucking companies.
