Old Blue ties up Tweetsie Tracks.

Tom Grabenstein

Harry's ancient model T “hack” blew its 20 hp engine awhile back transporting luggage from Linville Depot to Esceola Lodge on the ET&WNC R.R.

He rented out “Old Blue” the horse to drag it in for repairs.

Seems “Blue’s” 1 horse power engine pooped out right at a grade crossing on the ET&WNC  west of the depot. 

Now the iron horse is stuck and no amount of verbal encouragement is likely to get things moving again.

Thanks for looking. Doc Tom
