Joe, I thought I had the Sun-News article on the sale to Mid Atlantic/Duval close at hand, but last night, couldn't find it.

I'm sure I can find it easily, though, since the Sun-News is readily available on microfilm. It was titled something like, "Horry Railroad operator buys a short line."

The article quoted a Seabord Systems/CSX spokesman as saying that selling was an alternative to abandonment of the track.
