SAL Hamlet,NC Station : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread

There seems to be a lot of discussion on Yahoo's Trainorders about relocating the SAL Hamlet station across the tracks from its present location. Anyone in the know on this?

It has been suggested that the station will be moved to clear the area for a crew change parking lot and to remove a very old structure from near the CSX tracks. The talk is the station will be placed on beams, similar to the ones which moved the Cape light last year, and moved across the Columbia Line into the old station track area, then across the East Junction Line and back across the Columbia Line to the new location in the Southwest Corner of the Diamond, in the old location of the Hamlet Hotel. Crews have been working lately to shore up the building and placing plywood over the window openings.
