Tennessee Central signal from Vine Hill, the only signal on the whole Tennessee Central. I thanked my tour guide who had other things to prepare for tomorrow's big trip. I went back into the office thanking them for a nice visit before I started my walk back to the Drake Inn. I stopped on the way back at a gas station for some Coca Cola and at Subway for a Roast Beef Sandwich I took back to the Drake Inn to eat before I wrote this story.

The painting in my room above my bed at the Drake Inn. I worked and finished this story before walking to get some dinner and then relaxing the rest of the evening.
