Hi..wondering if you have any photos of the old railbed from when there was a railroad going to the coalfield in Chickaloon.

Sorry Jim, I only have a handful of pics from Chickaloon, none of the railroad.

@Shineycherri - I only lived in Chickaloon for about 6 months, I don't know about Tim Harris or old man luster.. You have my curiosity now though!

My family and I homesteaded at 80 mile on the Old Glenn Highway in 1959. We lived up at the top of up past Herm Cotters place. I was only 6 years old, but we went to the one room school house in Chilkaloon and the schoolmaster was Mr. Pinkum. I went to school with all the Luster kids, Lucy, John, and Letha are the only names I remember. We visited some at their homestead. Those were great times, but hard times. We had no running water or electricity at our homestead. We about starved to death too. But I am still here thanks to the grace of God and some generous neighbors in the area. I have couple of pictures of us on our homestead, but not many, they don't show much, just forest mostly. Nice talking to you. Kathy Correll Clark, my step-dad at the time was John Glenn, my mother was Thelma Louise Glenn
