12/19/1894: First Car to be Turned Out at the Lenoir Car Works This Week

From GenealogyBank: Daily Journal and Journal and Tribune, 12/19/1894, Knoxville, Tennessee, Volume X, Issue 296, Page 3.

WILL BE FIRST CLASS.

First Car to be Turned out at the Lenoir Car Works This Week.

The Lenoir Car Company will probably turn out the first car of the five hundred for the Southern Railway Company this week.

The Bass Foundry and Machine Company is turning out about 75 wheels per day while the car company is getting the boxes in shape.

I have just realized that it took two companies to make a rail car. I would suspect that the timing of the first car made for an exciting Christmas celebration and end to the year for the little town.
