South Carolina - Best Friend
Charleston, SC - The "Best Friend of Charleston" now housed in its Engine House at 31 Ann Street is a full-sized replica of the 1830 train. The steam engine was constructed from the original plans in 1928 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the "South Carolina Canal and Rail Road Company." Southern Railway operated this replica on excursions across the USA. The special railroad cars designed to carry the train between excursions are presently on display at the South Carolina Railroad Museum. The "Best Friend" was donated to the City of Charleston by Norfolk Southern in 1993. The Best Friend Museum closed in 2000. The Museum and Gift Shop were a joint venture of the Charleston Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society and the City of Charleston.

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.
