I have not visited the Pickens or the Greenville & Western for over a year now, but when I did pay them a visit, I would simply drive down out of Belton around noon and usually the Pickens local from Anderson would be creeping down towards the G&W interchange (both railroads run parallel to the road on opposite sides). The G&W crew would generally wait for the Pickens to drop a few carloads at the interchange then shuffle them around in the yard, followed by a run up to Pelzer.

The Pickens local continues into Honea Path, although last time I was there they did not return to Belton that afternoon. Very slow running trains, easy to follow and set up for photos.
