Scope and Contents: Throughout his career Dowdy collected photographs which related to railroading. Some of the photographs were taken by Dowdy, while others were obtained by trading with fellow collectors. Included are photographs of three rail lines: East Tennessee and Western North Carolina (ET&WNC), Linville River Railway (LRR)*, and Carolina, Clinchfield and Ohio Railway (CC&O). The prints primarily are of engines, depots, roundhouses, shops, rail crews, loading and unloading freight, and trains traversing various landscapes. Places depicted included Johnson City, Elizabethton, Hampton and Roan Mountain, Tennessee and Linville, Cranberry, Boone and Elk Park, North Carolina. The span dates given (1890-1950) derived from visual examination of the prints.

*Both ET&WNC and LRR were owned by Cranberry Iron, Coal and Coke Company, Cranberry, North Carolina.
