History of Tweetsie Railroad
April 8 - July 23, 2017
This exhibition explores the story of the East Tennessee and Western North Carolina Railroad (ET&WNC)—also known as “Tweetsie,” which references the sound of the train steam whistle—and it’s place in the histo-ry of the High Country since 1866. The exhibition will also reflect on the Tweetsie Railroad theme park, which opened in 1957. Among various attractions, the park allows visitors to take a ride on the original Lo-comotive #12, which turns 100 years old in 2017. Engine #12 is the last operating steamer of the ET&WNC.
