Remarks & Notes 
SOU. The 1827 formation of the South Carolina Canal and Rail Road Company is credited as the oldest predecessor line of the Southern Railway, which took that name in 1894. While tobacco and cotton were early traffic on the railroad, diversification brought in other industrial products. In 1982, it would join with the Norfolk & Western Railway to form Norfolk Southern Corp as a holding company. For the 30th Anniversary, an event was held at the N.C. Transportation Museum in Spencer, North Carolina with its 20 newly painted "heritage units”. On the night of July 3, 2012, Southern 6900 (E8A) and Norfolk Southern 8099 (Southern Heritage, ES44AC) were placed on adjoining tracks with lighting provided by the museum for photographers to capture memories.
