The railroad was known as the East Tennessee & Western North Carolina Railroad, abbreviated ET&WNC Railroad. After operating for a short time, locals began referring to the #12 steam locomotive as “Tweetsie” because of the train’s characteristic “Tweet Tweet” sound when coming into town or departing from the depot.
