R.J. Corman purchases former Carolina Southern Railroad

CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – R.J. Corman Railroad Company took possession Monday of the former Carolina Southern Railroad.

"We are grateful to the many community leaders who had the vision and determination to work together, form the interstate railroad committee and make this transition possible," R.J. Corman Railroad Group President and CEO Craig King said.

The company began clearing shrubs on the overgrown line and moving equipment into place almost two weeks ago, according to a news release from R.J. Corman Railroad Group.

"We have so much going for us already, with our location, our weather, our stable businesses and our people that having a vibrant railroad is going to make our economy grow exponentially," Interstate Railroad Committee Chairman Doug Wendel expressed.
