South Carolina - Lancaster and Chester Railroad Museum

Lancaster, SC - Once upon an occasion, a trip to the Springs Recreation Park would allow for a ride on the only miniature steam driven railway in the world. On any given weekend, the Lancaster and Chester crew could be found operating the Lilliputian Branch of the railroad. In those days, the branch consisted of three locomotives, four passenger cars, two flat cars, and a caboose. There was more than one mile of rail with a turntable, a round house, a station, two sidetracks, a water tank and a tunnel. Thousands of children visited the park annually to ride the train. A portion of this train is already on display at the L&C Museum with the remaining portion undergoing renovations.

The highlight of the museum is a scale model replica of the original 29-mile route of the L&C. The railroad enthusiasts have taken on the responsibility of making exact replicas of every building and facility on the route, plus shrubs, trees and bodies of water.
