GSWR Chattahoochee River Bridge
Posted November 21, 2013, by Joseph Hinson (joethephotog [at] yahoo [dot] com)

The South Carolina Central Railroad connection here is mainly from my understanding the grouping of railroads by RailTex in the 80s and 90s. RailTex was a shortline holding company later bought out by RailAmerica who was later bought out by GWI.

I would have to look up the ancestor railroads, by the South Carolina Central did not come to be until 1987.
