G&F trestle
Title:  G&F trestle
Description:  The rails were pulled up a long time ago, but the trestle still stands at Edgefield, SC. This is on what was the G&F's Greenwood Extension from Augusta, GA to Greenwood, SC.

G&F ROW
Title:  G&F ROW
Description:  This is north of the old C&WC bridge that goes over the G&F. The G&F actually went a little further past the stop sign. The switch is part of the wye CSX still uses today to turn engines. Maxwell Yard is a little ways to the left (west) of this pic.

G&F ROW
Title:  G&F ROW
Description:  A little further north from the walking trail/signal. The track to the left connects with CSX. This is part of a wye CSX still uses today to turn engines. The G&F main goes on around a little ways and dead ends with the switch for the other part of the wye. The G&F didn't have much of a yard just around the bend, and their "depot" was Seaboard's Maxwell Depot. Overhead is where the C&WC once came into town. Southern's and the C&WC's track ran side by side through the middle of downtown Greenwood. Southern tied their main with the G&F just south of here, and the C&WC tied their main to the Seaboard just west of Maxwell Yard so that both would no longer have to bear the downtown running headaches. Southern and C&WC would run on Seaboard's track to access the other portion of their main.

G&F ROW
Title:  G&F ROW
Description:  Looking north, this is where the G&F once came into Greenwood. The trail actually curves away from the ROW at the very back of the pic. The mainline went beyond the curve in the trail before going into a curve itself. This is where the rails are still in place, being used by CSX today to turn engines. After the Southern took over the G&F, Southern tied their mainline to the G&F main somewhere to the south of here so they could quit having to go through the middle of downtown Greenwood.
