My great grandfather Samuel J Ballentine was an engineer with the NC & StL.
I know his last run was around 1953, my Dad rode with him and we have family
pix and a newspaper article of that run. He was based out of Nashville and his
daily route was round trip to Chattanooga. He had 2 brothers who also worked
for the railroad, one was killed in 1942 (date unsure) in a railroading accident.
