Re: Southern Passenger Service - By CHESSIEMIKE on 06/21/16 at 21:50:26 - 'Southern_Passenger_Train_Schedules_Aug_68_small.jpg' 206 KB
Speaking of being late..... Seems I have an August 1968 Southern Railway System Passenger Train Schedule. In addition to The Crescent, The Southerner, and The City of Miami, the other name trains listed were The Peach Queen, The Pelican, Ashville Special, Birmingham Special, Man O' War, Nancy Hanks II, Royal Palm, and The Seminole.

This was NOT a good part of the railroad to be on in the Spring of 1965......One wreck, almost right after the other, both on high bridges, and all because of work being done from the other wreck. Basketball was the LAST thing on these workers minds that day. Where are we?

Can't you see? Once shared by three railroads beginning in 1904 and almost lost to neglect by 1996, it's now a convention center and visitors bureau

Here's a sad August 2014 view of the same piece of track...Needless to say, I don't think trains will ever run here again.

Re: GTL on the Southern Railway - By Bridge 1A on 01/08/16 at 09:35:19 - 'the20grade-1.jpg' 87 KB
Yep Charlie, that's it!
 
Technically speaking though, this is taken at the top of the grade in Tyron, NC where engines would stop, set retainers, check brakes and get a supervisory-level operating official to pilot the train to the bottom of the Saluda Grade.
 
The "certain convention" was the 1987 NRHS convention in Ashville, NC, where I had the chance to walk part of the grade and explore the runaway tracks and marvel at at (empty) piece of track that yes, really DOES climb up the side of the hill like a model railroad! The NS was runing very few trains over it at this point in time, and I happened to miss all of them! (I was only 17 and reliant on my parents to drive me)

And yeah, it really DOES look like that when you stand at he bottom and look up....No telephoto lens trickery needed!

Why should all the other FF Forums have all the fun? C'mon, Southerners, step up to the plate and play along! While I admit I know VERY little about the great Southern, I have ridden and explored some of it in the Piedmont. So c'mon, let's put on our thinking caps and GTL!

Re: A Sunday afternoon stroll - By electro soundwave on 09/02/07 at 08:48:38 - 'Image00001-2.jpg' 191 KB
Two weeks ago I was hunting a coal drag. Started in Greenville, and I caught up to it in Spartanburg. Ran into another Inman boy at Magnolia (what is it with us Inman boys and trains?) and after telling me of an abandoned C&WC tunnel underneath Main Street in Spartanburg (which is really neat and I'll get pics when the kudzu dies down for the winter), he gave me a better idea of where the washout is. I went up to it yesterday morning. Basically it's south of Tryon heading back towards Hayne. I'm starting this off with the Tryon signal

OK, this use to be a road off of Pine Street in Spartanburg, SC. But at some point they filled it in, and it's now basically a grassy area. That's the W Line that runs on top of it.

Re: A Sunday afternoon stroll - By electro soundwave on 03/28/07 at 02:22:12 - 'Image00088.jpg' 323 KB
glad I can be of some service.  George, I want to thank you for your insights to some of the questions that I had about things I saw along the way. I have one more trip to make before I will have completed the grade itself and then i have some things that I didn't have room for on my camera to get back at Melrose. Then onto the rest of the line.  
 
 
Anyway, the streetlight thing is quite common in areas like this on NS. the BMW storage yard is like this and also they have lights at a lot of their signals, at least around here. I don't have time to post everything, but I'm going to leave you all  with these two. The first one I happened to see when I had stepped to the side to answer natures call and just happened to look up.

And here it is. Melrose, NC. The bottom of the Saluda Grade. The bridge goes over the North Pacolet River and Pearson's Fall's Road. If Bruce had kept forward, this is where he would have wound up.
 
Anyway, to the right you see the runaway track. To the left you see where they park to set/disengage the brakes on the cars.

I thought this turned out well, but you cant read the sign so what it says is "starting timing section" It was here that the truth as to the fate of the train would be told

[46]

Re: A Sunday afternoon stroll - By electro soundwave on 03/27/07 at 02:39:15 - 'Image00068.jpg' 428 KB
this sign was found on the ground. After Brosnan's modernization program, Saluda was basically automated. The steam whistles that would tell the attendant at Melrose were silenced by the timing section. If a train was going to fast, the track would not align back to the main. If it was going at proper speed, it would then be set to the main.

These trees were felled by a storm at some point and someone came by and cut them with a chainsaw. The fact that it was across the tracks were they cut made me think. I keep hearing rumors that there is light maintenance done by Asheville and I have seen MOW equipment in various places along the line in the past.

OK, this is the signal that was yellow in Bruce's (Erie Atlantic) video. It was kept yellow due to the doubles up the line. Underneath is where Pearson's Falls Road goes underneath (That's where Bruce is honking his horn in the tunnel)

Now these next shots are of what i discovered recently. Now keep in mind that I have been going by the mill for years. And I mean years. I have seen where the crossing had been paved over and I could see the old ROW leading into the mill itself. I have even been by the mill street that these are adjacent to, yet I had never seen these until I went walking through all of the underbrush surrounding the yard.

Richmond and Danville Railroad - By electro_soundwave on 01/25/06 at 01:52:58 - 'rd822.jpg' 415 KB
Richmond and Danville Railroad-
 
 
This predecessor of the Southern was responsible for the building of the famous New Orleans/Washington D.C. line in the 70's. 1870's that is. All info taken from the Rail Georgia website.
 
 The Richmond & Danville, chartered in Virginia in 1847, opened a 140-mile rail line between the two cities of its name in 1856. A 48-mile extension from Danville to Greensboro, N.C., was completed during the Civil War.
 
After the war, the railroad came into the possession of the Southern Railway Security Company, a holding company created to extend the interests the Pennsylvania Railroad into the South. Organized in 1871, it was controlled by, among others, Tom Scott of the Pennsylvania, William T. Walters and B.F. Newcomer of Baltimore, James Roosevelt of New York, and Henry Bradley Plant of the Southern Express Company.
 
In 1872, the R&D extended aid to the Atlanta and Richmond Air-Line Railway to help it complete its road between Charlotte and Atlanta. The line was to become a key link in the "Piedmont Air Line, a system of railroads across the southeast.
 
By the mid-1870s, the Southern Railroad Security Company and the Pennsylvania Railroad had gained control of over 2,000 miles of railroad including the East Tennessee, Virginia & Georgia, the Western & Atlantic, the Memphis & Charleston, the Wilmington & Weldon, and the Charlotte, Columbia & Augusta. Profits were minor, however, due largely to the ruined condition of the southern post-war economy. During the latter half of the decade the group sold of its southern holdings and the Pennsylvania turned its attention to the west. In 1880, the Pennsylvania sold the R&D to the new Clyde Syndicate.
 
In 1881, the R&D leased the Atlanta-Charlotte line, by then renamed Atlanta and Charlotte Air-Line Railway.
 
In 1880, the Richmond and West Point Terminal Railway and Warehouse Company was chartered to acquire railroads which the R&D could not acquire directly due to a limitation in its charter. The Terminal Company quickly purchased over 700 miles of existing railroads and acquired the franchises for a number of projected lines including the Georgia Pacific Railway and the Rabun Gap Short Line Railway.
 
The Richmond and Danville bought the Lawrenceville-to-Suwanee line from the Lawrenceville Branch Railroad in 1885. This line was sold to the Atlanta and Charlotte Air Line Railway in 1908. It was abandoned in 1920.
 
The Richmond and Danville leased the 61-mile Northeastern Railroad of Georgia in 1886.
 
In 1887, the Terminal Company gained control of the East Tennessee, Virginia and Georgia Railway.
 
In 1888, the Terminal Company purchased the entire capital stock of the Georgia Company, which had been organized the previous year to acquire a controlling interest in the capital stock of the Central Railroad and Banking Company.
 
In 1889, the 566-mile Georgia Pacific Railway was completed and began operation from Atlanta to Greenville, Mississippi. It had been leased to the Richmond & Danville in January of that year.
 
In 1890, the Terminal Company acquired a controlling interest in the Alabama Great Southern Railroad.
 
The R&D grew to encompass some 3300 miles of railroad by 1890, but its financial standing became shaky soon afterwards. In 1892, the R&D and the Terminal Company entered receivership. After reorganization by J.P. Morgan, the railroad emerged in 1894 as the Southern Railway Company.
 
 
 
and here is a 1882 map of the system.

This is from the northside of the curve. It was also here that we started to make our way back to the car after we realized that the sun was almost down.

Not exactly sure what this road is but I'm thinking it's a service road that leads to the main road behind the bushes in the background.

At first I thought that this was possibly Slaughterhouse Cut but upon research that was conducted later, it's nowhere near it. However, there is a Horseshoe Roard right around here (perhaps inklings of the NW merger and then the Conrail split?)

Both of them. Note the sensor (I'm guessing that's what that is) in the background.

this was a common sight on the line. Lots of discarded railway spikes.

This was a bit odd. I have never seen a crossing sticker like this before and also the road ends at the tracks. You can see where there used to be a road but the stopsign is facing the torn up road. I do know that this would make a very neat fanning spot should the ever decide to re-open the Grade.

Cut's like thsi are an all too common sight. I can only imagine living about 20 or 30 years ago along the houses that I saw along this line and seeing the freight manifests that used to come up this way. I saw them when they came down through Inman but to actually see them handle the Grade must have been fantastic.
