Seaboard Passenger Train Questions : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread

I have two questions regarding SAL Passenger trains.

(1) - When was the last run of the Palmland?

(2) - When did the SAl acquire the 52 seat light weight coaches (#6242-6251) from C&O?


-- Bill Parks (, August 29, 2004


C&O sold the coaches to SAL in June 1958. The full story of these and other ex-C&O (and ex-NKP) cars on the ACL and SAL, by Mike Savchak, is in the 3rd quarter issue of Lines South, which will be going in the mail in a few days.

The Palmland lasted until Amtrak (last run 4-30-71), although by that time it ran only to Columbia.
