end of track aiken

The end of the line on the first long-distance mainline in the US, the ex-Southern, Ex-SCRR, Ex-Charleston&Hamburg.

 

This is off of US 78, East of Aiken at the United Energy Fuel depot

 

Everyday 100s of trucks pass by carrying containers from Atlanta to Charleston, if the tracks were still in place, that could be replaced by one or two intermodal trains saving wear on the highway and reducing traffic on the two-lane highway.
