Brach & Brock Confections, in Chattanooga. In 1994, the Brach's and Brock's candy companies merged. Specifically, the chairman of the board of E.J. Brach purchased all of the shares of Chattanooga-based Brock Candy Confections. Pretty lucky for those of us who had difficulty telling them apart anyway. While the sign on the building in Chattaanooga still says "Brach & Brock," it appears that they've discontinued the Brock trademark, and the official company name is Brach's Confections.

Tennessee Valley Railroad -- an operating museum. Didn't have time to go down and check it out, though. They're next door to the NMRA headquarters building.

National Model Railroad Association headquarters building. I have a model of this building somewhere, from the fundraising effort they had to build this thing. It was nice to see it in real life -- I guess they raised enough money to build it. Didn't have the time to go in, though. Maybe next time I'm in town.

Before turning in the rental car, I had dinner at "Bar-B-Cutie" in Nashville.

Everywhere I went in Nashville and Chattanooga, I had the choice of regular Iced Tea or Unsweet Iced Tea. (When I went to Toronto the following month, there was no unsweetened iced tea to be had, anywhere.)
