Remarks & Notes 
Loaded vehicle train NS 275 (Shelbyvile,KY-Atlanta,GA) glides south through Sunbright, TN (MP-231.4) on the CNO&TP 2nd District. It wasn't until the late 50s, and early 60s that the original 5+ mile section of the CNO&TP that ran straight into the the town of Sunbright, was relocated just a few miles east of town. As part of the 1960s realignment, and double track, it would cut the worry of height clearance from Tunnel 16, and would give all trains a gentler grade to endure. The original right of way still exist along with Tunnel 16 now abandon.
