History & Architecture of
NC&St.L Depots & Terminals

There was an allure to the depots of the Nashville, Chattanooga & St. Louis Railway. A station on the NC&St.L was a busy, noisy, and fascinating place.

Travelers hurried to make their way to their departing trains or to make connections between trains on which they had just arrived and those going on to farther destinations.
