I started working for Penn Dixie cement corp in Kingsport in 1954. The plant was built in 1912, and they used iron ore from the Cranberry mine to manufacture cement at that time. It was brought by Tweetsie to Johnson City where it was transferred to the Clinchfield. The cars had double wheels so that they could run both on the narrow gauge and standard gauge tracks.
