Jaydon’s new Best Friend of Charleston

Last Monday Jaydon and Daddy help celebrate the return of the “Best Friend of Charleston” train back to Charleston. The train, on the back of a tractor-trailer, made a 6-hour stop in at the Summerville-Dorchester Museum in Summerville SC. The Best Friend of Charleston was on temporary loan to Norfolk Southern for display in their Atlanta GA office and was returning home to Charleston SC.

The Best Friend of Charleston is a replica of the original train that ran from Charleston to Summerville in 1830. The train was constructed from the original plans in 1928 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the “South Carolina Canal and Rail Road Company.” The “Best Friend” was eventually donated to the City of Charleston by Norfolk Southern in 1993.
