From Monte Mitchell in today's Winston-Salem Journal:
Chris Robbins has heard the rumors swirling around Tweetsie Railroad for years.
As the attraction's general manager, he can put some of them to rest: Dolly Parton isn't buying Tweetsie; it's not moving to Ashe County; and the rains last fall from the remnants hurricanes didn't wash out the tracks and force Tweetsie to close.
But Robbins, who owns controlling shares in Tweetsie Railroad Inc. with his parents, is uncertain about Tweetsie's future. He doesn't know whether it will move after next season or even if it will still be open.
