Puritan Board Post-Graduate
I'm increasingly running into people who borrow my name...from now on I am 'Trent the original' or Trent the great (this is my 4,000th post :p)

Greetings. Pretty countryside up that way, but it used to be pretty remote. I think Blue Ridge was on the old Marietta to Murphy, NC rail line ("Murphy Branch") a chunk of which was abandoned by what is now the CSX 30 or so years ago. The rest of it ended up being run by a short line last time I looked (which was also some years ago.) Just looked it up - looks like the line now terminates in Blue Ridge - so you still have rail service.


Puritan Board Senior
Welcome to the board. If I'm remembering the right face, it was good to meet you earlier this year.
