We are easy to find:

We are located next to the existing CSX Nashville-Chattanooga mainline where US Highway 41A crosses the tracks in beautiful renovated downtown Cowan.

Access from Interstate 24 between Chattanooga and Nashville at Milepost 134, southwest to Cowan about 14 miles.

Cross the railroad tracks, and turn to your left on Front Street.

SAFETY FIRST! Watch out for the trains, as this is a VERY busy piece of heavy-duty railroad where Pusher Engines are regularly dispatched.
