A Day of Infamy

Well, hard to believe, it's 60 years ago today that the O&W shut down. I never saw it in operation, but spent quite a few days in Orangeburg climbing through the cabooses and HT-1 that used to be there. Ghosts of the past, just slowly fading away.....

Thanks for noting the 60th Anniversary.

Sad day for O&W fans.
