Chattanooga Railroad Series: Across Amnicola Highway (Second Line)

Tuesday, June 17, 2014 - by John Wilson

The second of the three railroad lines that were built across Amnicola Highway from the nearby DeButts Yard crosses just beyond Kangaroo Express and Arrow Exterminators (former Chattanooga Association of Realtors) near Judd Road.

One branch veers off to the left and heads for the Riverport. There are two branches at Riverside Lane, including one that goes to Univar USA and another that goes to Foodliner and other facilities. One branch goes near Amnicola Marsh heading in the direction of the election office. It veers over to serve industries on River Terminal Road.

A line that crosses North Hawthorne Street just after the DeButts Yard curves over just short of Wisdom Street on a lot now owned by the Chattanooga Police Department. Another line goes to the W.R. Grace facility near North Hawthorne.

Another section of the second line once went to industries in the vicinity of Judd Road. That line is now overgrown and out of use just after there is a crossing of it for the Riverwalk by Judd Road.

Another offshoot goes to Woodbridge Foam Fabricating.
