[Now Orleans Timos-1)mocrat.]
"I was greatly int rested the
other day," said a passenger con
(uctor who runs into Now Orleans,
"in looking < ver an old I"chedule of
the South Carolina railroad, printed
just forty-seven years ago, in the
fall of '52. It is hard to realize
what tremendous changes have taken
place within the memory of people
who are now alive and hearty. In
the 5Os the South Carolina line was
considered one of the best equipped
and fastest roads in the country. I
find by the old schedule that the
night express between Charleston
and Columbia, which is a distance of
about 130 miles, made the trip when
it had good luck, in twelve hours
and fifteen minutes, but the public
was warned not to expect such a feat
every day. The freight service be
tween the two points vas scheduled
to cover the run in twenty-nino
hours, there or thereabouts. That
was a shade boltter than four and
one half miles 1n hour, and was con
sidered so fast there is a special
order to trainmen to stop at the first
siding in donso fogs and wait for
same to lift. It seems to me that
order gives one a wonderful picture
of the good old times. Think of a
through freight roosting on a siding,
waiting for a fog to lift! Nowadays
the passenger trains make the run
from Ci. .rleston to Columbia in]
four hours exactly. According to tile
'52 schedule there was an express
that left Charleston at 5 p. mi. and
arrived in Hamburg at 0 the follow-.
ing morning. The distance is 130
miles. A freight for Aiken, 120
miles away, left at the same hour
and reached its destination at 9.40
next night. Ton01 miles an hour wvn
considered remarkable speed for pas
senger trains in those days, and an
old i"habitant told me that many
people declined to risk their necks at
such a gait. From what I hear of
the rolling stock equipmont they
showed ther good sense.
