Question about CC&O in Johnson City

Chris Ford


Hope your Thanksgiving was good, and I'm wishing all a safe and merry Christmas Season.

I got this following email, and while it is technically not an ET&WNC question, it is related to Johnson City's yard and the CC&O. Here's the question, anyone have any ideas about an answer? If so, I'll pass those along to the questioner. If this is not considered relevant enough for this forum let me know and I'll push it out to another group or have the original questioner push it.

Thanks, and have a great (albeit cold) week!

Here's the question....
I have a Johnson City railroad question and I thought I would ask you to see if anyone in your group may know.
It is not a ETWNC question, but rather a CC&O question.
The CC&O Johnson City Yard and siding was called Barrett.
Would anyone in your group/membership know how Barrett received its name?
