Passenger service on the ACL Spring Hope Branch? : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread

What type of passenger service was available on the ACL Spring Hope Branch? When did it end?

-- Richard T. Lasater (, April 28, 2000


Passenger trains ran three roundtrips a day, Rocky Mount to Spring Hope, until about 1926. Thereafter, passengers were carried on a once a day roundtrip of a mixed train until about March 1937, at which time the branch went freight only, passenger service having been done in by the family auto. ACL passenger service is never shown west of Spring Hope in the documentation at hand.
