Re: Jimmy Hobbs plays marbles
This is a treasure and I am so glad that so many pieces of ET history are in your good hands.
I see the the tickets to Pardee Point…..and I have seen fares posted to Pardee Point as well …..
Do you know if passengers actually embarked/disembarked there? It’s a bit of a hike in either direction

Here is the ticket cabinet that came from the Elizabethton depot. It is a roll top locking cabinet with tickets from Elizabethton to other stops on the line. It is sitting on the table from the same depot with the cash/coin drawer. I have included a photo of a ticket with the clay marble. The marble is about 1” in diameter. They are all colored differently. The marble was placed behind the tickets to keep them in place.
Also notice the ticket cutter. The larger tickets were placed in the cutter and the pointer was moved to the destination station and then ripped. Leaving only a piece for the customer showing the station he had paid to be dropped off at.
