Anyone who knew Virgil knew of his love of trains. From model trains to working for the Tennessee Central Railroad and the Opryland Railroad, Virgil was committed to sharing his love of trains with others. The family would like to recognize the members of the Music City Chapter of the TCA for their care and companionship over the years. Many of his fondest memories were made with these fine gentlemen.
