Northeastern North Carolina Railroads

Posted by Sparks on 30 December 2014 in English (English)

Over the past few days I've been working on aligning, verifying, and adding track to the existing railroads in northeastern North Carolina. The majority of the work extends down the old Norfolk Southern, now Carolina Coastal, tracks from Plymouth to Chocowinity to Greenville to Winterville. Once in Greenville I continued north up the CSX line to Parmele.

These lines were in need of work as they were way out of alignment and, many times, incorrectly categorized. In some locations, such as the PCS Phosphate plant in Aurora, the only lines that were mapped were the old ones that no longer exist.

I also did spot checks around the state port in Morehead City, Camp Lejuene, and Cherry Point MCAS. There is still work to be done...

Items to be completed

  • Line between Morehead City and New Bern.
  • Line between New Bern and Chocowinity.
  • NCRR line between New Bern and points west.
  • Line to Camp Lejuene.
Location: Chocowinity, Beaufort County, North Carolina, United States of America
