Marion and Southern Railroad

The Marion and Southern Railroad was a South Carolina railroad that operated during the first half of the 20th century.

The Marion and Southern was incorporated in South Carolina in 1907.[1]

The carrier's main line extended from Marion, South Carolina, to Brownsville, South Carolina, about 20 miles. Of the total mileage, only the 1.6-mile section between Marion and West Marion, South Carolina, was used by the carrier.[2] The remainder was leased to and operated by the Marion County Lumber Company.[3]

The Raleigh and Charleston Railroad acquired control of the line in 1912. By the time the line was abandoned in 1937, only a two-mile segment from West marion to Marion was still in service.[4]
