cool things with wheels, since 2006
1889 Knoxville Journal newspaper tells of the Queen and Crescent Route that uses the Mann Boudoir Car! My research for the Old Smoky Railway Museum in Knoxville, Tennessee found that our East Tennessee, Virginia & Georgia Railway connected at Keathley on the map here which is better known as Oakdale, TN
well that is great news! When you finish your research, can you share it with me, send me a link, or something?
These cars only came regularly into Knoxville for several months ending in January 1, 1889. Now hope to find if the 19th century opera singer diva Adelina Patti ever came to Knoxville on her US tours. Seems she had a Mann Boudoir car personally built for her. She resided in her castle in Wales called Craig-y-nois.
