Question Eastman (Kingsport) Train Yard Frequencies

I am on the look out for the scanner frequencies for the Eastman rail yard. I was wondering if anyone has anything regarding the trains at Eastman of Kingsport, TN.

The easiest way to find your local rail frequencies is to put your scanner in search mode between 160-162.

I have several trains in the area so figuring out the Eastman yard would be hard. I figured someone had the information.

OK firstly here we have CSX:
160.395
160.785
160.890
161.100
161.265
161.415
161.520

160.320
161.370

160.230
160.350
160.485
160.590
160.800
161.430
161.550

And if the yard you speak of is actually under Eastman Chem control, you also want to monitor their systems .

And as always: Once you identify the ones specific to the facility, please submit the data so we can add it to the listings in the db.

Eastman has a HUGE Motorola 800 trunked system. Aside from that, I don't have anything in my listings for Eastman on VHF, and very little on UHF. I'd say they have a talkgroup or two on that trunk system.

From what I've heard, they also make extensive use of telephone interconnect due to issues with cell phones at the chemical plant.
