locked Mose Siskin part 2

I left out one local owner. C. E. James. He built the railroad with Sage money and later bought it for himself. When James passed his son sold to the Chambliss syndicate. Mr. James also built the Chattanooga Traction Company.

As for who ran the TAG, the TAG had a series of absentee owners. The investor Russell Sage, the railroad investor Newman Erb and the Coverdale syndicate. Only Siskin and earlier the Chambliss syndicate, were local. Of the last three presidents - or day to day managers- of TAG, two were former Southern executives. The last was former SOU ex. vp Macon Tollison.
