There is a news conference set for next Friday (June 28) to announce the findings as to whether the Norfolk & Western #611 can run again. The feeling is that the announcement will be that, yes, she can run again, but now we need to raise some money to make that happen.
This building is in serious danger of being demolished and replaced by student housing for the University of South Carolina. Updated the page with a link to a 2/26 article from the State (SC)
It'd be a sad day for Columbia if this were to happen.
Working up a page on this historic and recently reopened depot in Gilbert, SC.
I have been only able to find out scant information about this depot. So far, normally reliable sources of information about South Carolina depots has turned up very little in the way of a build date and the date passenger service ended here. I will keep looking.
I love the photos from outside of the hotel. I really wishI had driven by when I was out there in 1999.
Added five photos to this classy Richmond, Va. landmark.
I posted a history of this railroad in the essay section. Check it out!
I updated this landmark with a story in the sources from the 12/14 State newspaper about it's possible demolition.
I updated this page with six modern-era photos as well as details of an arson that nearly destroyed the building. See also the new sources.
