Here ya go, Pete:

Elizabethton Planning Director Jon Hartman said the track removal will
begin at the eastern end of the line on State Line Road. The track removal
work will move westward through Elizabethton and then on through the
western sections of Carter County until it reaches Johnson City.


He said the Elizabethton Police Department will be assisting the track
removal by patrolling any staging areas to prevent the theft of rails and
crossties and assist in the removal of any vehicles parked near the rail

I hate to be a wet blanket guys, but you may want to contact G&W
as theft of OTM is a highly prosecutable offense, and a felony. With
