Caption: Tweetsie train from Appalachia book. The East Tennessee and Western North Carolina Railroad, affectionately called the 'Tweetsie' in reference to the sound of its steam whistles, was primarily a narrow gauge railroad established in 1866 for the purpose of serving the mines at Cranberry, North Carolina. The narrow gauge portion of the ET&WNC was abandoned in 1950, however the 11-mile, 4 ft 8 1/2 in (standard gauge) segment of the line from Johnson City to Elizabethton, Tennessee still exists today as the East Tennessee Railway.
