SAL Acme Depot?? : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread

Hi Folks, I located a depot just off of NC 87 and US 74/76 that is being used as the East Columbus County Library. It is very near Acme, NC. Was this originally Acme's depot? Was it a Seaboard Air Line depot or ACL? I does not fit ACL's usual pattern, but that would not surprise me. Thanks! Marc

Marc: I have a small polaroid which I took in either 12/76 or 12/77 while the depot was still in location. If you decide you want a copy, just let me know. I am not certain what year the station was closed. The picture is fairly clear. As Buddy Hill stated, it originally sat at Delco and was just off US 74/76. It was located on the opposite side of the highway from the Reigelwood post office and was located about a tenth of a mile east of the post office heading towards Wilmington. I haven't seen the depot since it was moved. Is the small room still on the front of it? David Smith

The depot in question was built by the ACL and formerly located in Delco NC (approximately 1 mile from its current location in Riegelwood NC). Hope this helps. Buddy Hill (no emails please)
