Transportation/Railroads/PSN RR - Shawmut

PSN RR - Shawmut - Present View - 2013

These photos depict the present (2013) view of the PS&N RR right of way between Richburg and Friendship. Thanks to the photographer, Richard Langdon, of the Friendship-Nile Historical Society, we can view where the coal cars used to travel “over the Notch” to Friendship and beyond.
