Dive into the history of area railroads at the Beaufort District Collection

A sketch by W.T. Crane. of Federal troops near Pocotaligo on October 22, 1862.

From the conversion of the Port Royal Railroad into a public trail, to the Pocotaligo reenactment, to a model train exhibit for Christmas, rail roads have been in the news a lot in the Beaufort area in recent weeks.

Especially considering the county is virtually without any rail lines these days.

The Beaufort District Collection has picked up on that and compiled a list of library resources, saying in part: "In honor of the 20th annual Beaufort Railroaders Model Train display, here is a selective list of materials we have on the railroads of our past."

Check out their roundup and samples over here.
