Clinchfield Railroad Museum Opens in Unicoi, TN

Back in the early spring of this year, I had read that a Clinchfield Railroad Museum was under construction in the Erwin, TN area. On my last trip to Clinchfield Country in the spring, a railfan friend and I looked for the location in Unicoi. We found the location for reference to visit on a future trip once the museum opened.

According to this article, the Clinchfield Railroad Museum opened June 3, 2011. As a long-time fan of the CRR, I can’t wait until my next visit to the Erwin area to visit this museum!

    The wife and I visited the museum today, I was very impressed. Even more impressing is the lady that gave us a wonderful two hour tour. Her name is Martha Erwin and her knowledge of the area and the railroad in incredible.

    My Dad, L.C. Tipton Sr. retired from the Clinchfield after 30 years of service. I have wonderful video;s of his recollections of his time as section foreman from Spartanburg to Spruce Pine . We lived at Camp 2. Had his own motorcar at the house and got his lineup every morning from Ervin. Bob Roberts is a name I remember. Lot’s more.
