The Railroad Historical Center has big plans, but we need your help to get there. One major recently completed plan is a deck and handicapped lift, this has opened the rear of the "Carolina" as well as Diner-Lounge 746 and Erie Sleeper No 5 to handicapped visitors.
The Railroad Historical Center also has other special plans to make No 19 one of the best steam loco displays in the country, certainly in the Southeastern United States. Restoration is progressing on interurban No 2102, and recently historic seats have been restored, but we still need new lamps, a new control stand, bell, and many other components to accurately represent 1910s-1950s rail travel in the Upstate by interurban. Check back here for updates and how you can help us enhance the visitor experience and make the visit feel more immersive. We are still raising funds for improvements to the 19 such as restoring the original whistle to blow on compressed air for demonstrations, the replica of Greenwood's Southern Railway station, and to restore the last P&N interurban, 2102.
PHASE II OF OUR HANDICAPPED LIFT AND DECK PROJECT IS COMPLETE!
WE ARE WORKING TO RESTORE THE '3 CHIME' WHISTLE ON ENGINE No 19.
