Arnold Eaves grew up in Flintstone, Georgia, in a house equidistant between the CofGa’s C-Line and the Tennessee, Alabama and Georgia Railway. When the atmosphere was right, he could hear the whistles of both railroads as they worked the grade crossings leading to the Tennessee state line and their terminals in Chattanooga.
Arnold is a graduate of Carson-Newman College and holds a Master of Education degree from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky. He is a retired Baptist minister. Arnold lives in Woodstock, Georgia, and is working on an N-scale model railroad layout depicting the north end of the C-Line, as well as the northern end of the TA&G.
