Orangeburg to North, SC

The Orangeburg Railway ran from North, SC to Orangeburg. Not a great deal is known about this line. In downtown Orangeburg, rail were in place as late as the mid-1970s ending behind Edisto Gardens. The crossing over US Route 301 had automated flashers. This is where the Holiday Inn is now. Even finding where the line ran through town is becoming difficult.

Towns on the line from Orangeburg are Jennings, Culler, Robinson, Raymond, Fairview, Wolfton, Sistrunk, and to the SAL mainline at North.
