The Clinchfield No. 1 holds a special place in the hearts of all those lucky enough to hear the steam engine's whistle blow through the mountains of Tennessee, Virginia, Kentucky, the Carolinas and points south.
"The One & Only," written by longtime engineer A.J. "Alf" Peoples and author and newspaper publisher Mark A. Stevens, tells the tale of Clinchfield No. 1 through hundreds of color and black-and-white photos.
Professional and amateur photographers from around the United States donated photos for the book, which is published by Elizabethton's Star Publishing.
