Cowan RR Museum has installed a radio that monitors CSX communications around Cowan. You can listen online using this link.    (Please note -- you do not need to download any software to listen to the feed.)

We are also rebroadcasting this communication on FM frequency 87.9 using a 5 watt transmitter. Even if the museum is closed you can listen on your car FM radio (or portable radio) while you watch the trains.

All this capability comes from the tireless work of John D. Peterson of Decatur Alabama. John has a web site at http://www.alabamarailfan.com

The membership of the Cowan RR Museum is indebted to John for volunteering his time, talent, equipment and funds to make this installation a reality. If you like what you hear and see, let John know you appreciate his substantial contribution to making the Cowan RR Museum, as one reminder of the old N&C, a more enjoyable place to visit.

If you have not been to the Cowan RR Museum lately, you are cordially invited to visit. We are always trying to give visitors something new to see and enjoy.

Cowan Railroad Museum is a non-profit 503(c)3 corporation chartered in the State of Tennessee.
Every effort is made to provide factual and useful information.
