Robert--there was an article in the October 1992 issue of Railroad Model Craftsman by Doug Nuckles on modeling the Saluda grade. There is a trackplan included.

Dear Robert,

The Southern line between Charlotte and Columbia is the Columbia District of the Piedmont Division. In past years, before division consolidation, this was part of a separate Columbia Division. It is also sometimes referred to as the "R line" because the milepost locations are preceded by the letter "R" to differentiate them from from other milepost locations of the same number.
