Nashville, Chattanooga & St. Louis Railway aka NC&StL, NC&Stl.L, ncstl,  






Guntersville Depot has just been restored in recent years by the Guntersville Historical Group (Society? Association?...I forget what they are called). Anyway, the building looks fabulous. It sits right close to where CSX still switches freight cars along a short segment of track. Back about 100 yards from the depot is a small building built by N&C. From what I hear, it was an "engineer washroom", and only measured about 20 feet W by 12 feet D. The date that is embedded in the concrete floor suggests a construction time of around 1946.

Guntersville Depot is about one mile from where the N&C River Ferry would stop to transfer the cars back and forth for over 20 miles along the river. The depot itself sat at approx. Milepost #86 along the Huntsville Branch, including all 20+ miles along the river. This distance of 86 miles commenced out of Decherd at the N&C mainline. Chase Depot (NARM) sits at about milepost 42.5 making it the halfway point.
