Nice Pictures of what was. I would like to make a few corrections here though. The Seaboard Air Line never operated here. This was the mainline of the Piedmont and Northern Railroad. The P&N was aquired by the SCL later. It became part of Seaboard System. The P&N and Southern ran parallel to each other for many miles here. The Southern was abandoned first after getting trackage rights on Seaboard System in 1983. The old P&N line survived into the CSX era, but not for long. Most of the P&N was removed in the early 1990s. A walking path was built on part of it.

The old P&N passed under the Overpass in Hodges. This was never the SAL. Howevr, it became part of the SCL later and survived into CSX. Eugene Cain

Thanks for the corrections and additional information Eugene. I lived on Hwy 178 north of Hodges, SC when I was in elementary school and both the Southern and SCL lines were still operating. The SCL went right through our back yard and the engineers would throw candy out of the window to us.

Grew up in Greenwood, went to Clemson.

One of the Old Annuals from Clemson said the Clemson students would catch the train to Anderson for movies, before talkies. That had to be the line from Walhalla to Anderson which the connection on the P&N could have been to Greenwood.
