CSX - I-24 Overpasses
Posted June 26, 2021, by Al Grayson (ahgrayson [at] gmail [dot] com)

These bridges carried the L&N-CSX spur to the former Sunbeam Bakery, now the Lane Motor Museum. The tracks and switch appear functional if the Museum ever has a need for a railroad car to be switched in to the Museum.

Curiously, the spur is off of the former Tennessee & Pacific RR from Lebanon, Tennessee to the connection with the Nashville & Chattanooga, NC&StL, L&N, now CSX. The track is now an industrial spur about mile long.
