I am looking for information on a train wreck that I believe occurred February 27, 1902 on the Southern while on the way to Zetella, GA.

I have a 8 by 10 cabinet card of 2 southern and 1 P&R (Reading)- 1 steel gondola, 2 wooden hopper cars, and 1 wooden box car- in a wreck labeled 1902- Near Whitesburg, TN.... could this be the one you are after? Andy

I would also be interested in anything anyone could come up with regarding this line, from Fayetteville to Williamson, even through Zebulon down. ....The roadbed is used as a road "Railroad Dr." and the depot still stands off hwy 16 and Rover-Zetella Rd. in Spalding county. ...Still pieces of old track laying around there also.

Also, did hwy 16 have an overpass for this line? It sure looks like it.
