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.

Monster truck SUVs and 18 wheelers, but not typical SUVs, I reckon.

Folks;

I have added a history to this wonderful treasure in South Carolina as well as one of my own photographs. Please click on this and see what is so cool about a never-used, mostly incomplete railroad tunnel in South Carolina.

I'm always scouting the web for other pictures of this structure. Bridge and rail fans in the Columbia, SC area love this bridge and in the grane scheme fo things, it hasn't been gone that long. (1991 or 1992) Google Earth imagery only goes back to 1994 in this area, so that's a no go.

Any ideas on other places to look beside searching Google for "Lincoln Street Viaduct" or some variation?

I-77 Railroad Bridge (West Virginia)
Posted January 28, 2013

I believe it should be N&W, but am open for corrections.

Posted January 24, 2013

Thanks for adding. I had forgotten about this bridge as well as the "Southern Railway" on the side of it. If I'm not mistaken, Spartanburg has three railroad companies with their names on bridges -- the Southern, Atlantic Coast Line and Clinchfield, neither of whom exist anymore!

On the photography side, when a bridge gets a lot of photographs, perhaps there could be folders for the pictures. I'm not entirely sure how this would work and it would take some work on either the person uploading or the site owner and admins. Albums could be "Wide View" "Detail Shot" "Historical Views," etc. etc. Mainly for the bridges with a lot of shots.

If the photographer could caption the shots, too, that would be great.

CSX Railroad Bridge (South Carolina)

Don;

That must be right then. I drove over that bridge a bit in the late 90s and early 2000s and never paid attention to it, I guess.

CSX Railroad Bridge (South Carolina)

This bridge in Union, SC is not a wood bridge. Likely the one here now ( as seen in the Street View) replaced the wood bridge, but I don't know when because I do not remember it. It's a little off my beaten path, but the road is fairly busy. I looked on NBI and could not find the right bridge to put here.

Posted December 13, 2012

Interesting history, nonetheless!

Thanks for the comment, Clark!
