THE LUGOFF CAMDEN AND NORTHERN RAILROAD

Once upon a time I only had the Lugoff & Camden RR. I lived in Lugoff South Carolina and Camden is just across the Wateree River from me.

The Railroad Logo is a simple roundell that resembles many other railroad logos from the turn of the century.

Deep River Coal & Coke

I created a third railroad, the Deep River Coal & Coke. This is an On18 line that carries coal to the coking ovens originally. The ovens took up so much room that I removed them and replaced with a tipple.

1892 : The Deep River Coal & Coke is chartered by Branstetter Mining and Manufacturing. This 18″ Narrow Gauge runs from the mine to a tipple to transfer coal to the DRRR (future)

The Deep River Railroad

In time I realized I wasn’t happy with a narrow gauge line here and developed a subsidiary line, the Deep River Railroad in North Carolina (On30). I based this on the Deep River Coal Mine area in North Carolina figuring I could use a narrow gauge to harvest various aggregates in the area. I then connected the L&CRR to the DRRR.

The logo is a rondell that closely follows that of the parent LCN. In fact I then created the L&C Aggregate Co.

1894 : The Deep River Railroad is charted. This is a 30″ gauge line using equipment from a mine in South America owned by Branstetter Aggregates. DRC&C is reorganized as Deep River Mining
