I AM TRYING TO GET INFO ON A COUPLE OF STATIONS IN NORTH CAROLINA, FIRST ONE WOULD BE THE STATION IN CHADBOURN N.C., THE SECOND ONE IS THE ONE IN LINCOLNTON, N.C., THE THIRD ONE IS AT STATESVILLE, N.C. PHOTOS, OR ANY TYPE OF DOCUMENTATION PERTAINING TO THE TRAINS THAT RAN IN THEIR AREAS, OR PEOPLE THAT WORKED IN THEM, ANYTHING WOULD BE HELPFUL. THANKS THOMAS TUTHEROW

Sir, if you will contact Mr. Clarence Winstead, Fayetteville, N. C. and he is listed in the phone book, he will probably be able to supply the photos that you seek. He is a collector of memorabilia such as this. kiwalk

The station Mr.Edwards is refering to is the old passenger station.It was moved some yrs ago and is still in excellent shape(I pass it everytime I go to Myrtle beach).The freight station is also still standing and is the HQ for the Carolina Southern RR.

My father and I went to Chadbourn, NC back in 1997. They had a really nice railroad station, renovated and turned into a restaurant and a public meeting place.(at least that is what it said on a flyer on the window of the place). I believe it was two-story. Outside they had a Family Lines Caboose. I do not know if I was supposed to or not, but I took the chance and went inside. I climbed up into the cupola, openned the window and looked around for a few minutes. My dad motioned for me to come on, so I did. I think there was a cop around and he did not want me to get into trouble. It was early on a sunday morning in November. I do not know the present state of the building. Hope this helps.

The Statesville depot was on the Southern RR line from Salisbury to Asheville. It was on the north side. A few years ago it was moved to the south side, away from the tracks and is now a community center.

When I was in Rocky Mount, I found an excellant book on North Carolina railroad stations that are still in existance. The book was in the gift shop in the railroad station. It was very well done and very informative. The structures might not be railroad stations today but someone did a great inventory. Next time you and yours are in Rocky Mount, check it out.
