Remarks & Notes 
The head end of the Lhoist road train has just passed over Ozone East Trestle & is seen on the fill that was actually built to fill in the rest of the trestle that the rest of the train is crossing. One of the things the Tennessee Central was known for, especially on the eastern half of the line, was the many trestles that it built in its effort to build a direct route between Nashville & Knoxville. These many trestles are the main reason for NS finally forcing what was then Franklin Industrial Minerals to buy the line from the plant to Rockwood due to the high cost of highing to maintain it for only one customer. Lhoist, who later bought out Franklin, has since taken on the task of having to maintain & improve the line, with this fill being evidence of what these companies will do to keep maintenance cost down.
