Charlotte & South Carolina

The road was chartered in 1846 and completed in 1852. It linked Charlotte, and its growing web of railroads, with Columbia, SC and the South Carolina Railroad. It was a vital link in supplying Lee and Richmond when the Piedmont Railroad was completed. The gauge change between this road and the North Carolina Railroad caused a major bottleneck throughout the war.

This road operated the Atlantic, Tennessee & Ohio Railroad.
