Amtrak's Silver Meteor Yemassee, South Carolina, September 2003
The Yemassee Amtrak station is an Amtrak station in Yemassee, South Carolina. Located at 15 Wall Street (erroneously listed as 9 Main Street in the Amtrak timetable and at Amtrak.com), the station consists of a covered platform on the northwest side of the northeast-southwest tracks, a small parking lot, and a building. The building is mostly boarded up, but it does have a small waiting room for Amtrak passengers. It also contains a freight depot. Both the station and the freight house were originally built by the Charleston and Western Carolina Railroad and later run by the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad.
Yemassee is served by the Palmetto and Silver Meteor trains of Amtrak's Silver Service. Both trains pass through Yemassee, near the growing towns of Beaufort and Hilton Head, at roughly the same times of the day; the northbound Palmetto and southbound Silver Meteor do so in the morning, while the southbound Palmetto and northbound Silver Meteor come through in the evening.
This train could be modeled with a Kato P42, two Kato or Con Cor Budd bagagge cars, a Kato or Con Cor Budd coach as a standin for the dormitory/lounge car, two Con Cor Viewliners, one Bachmann Amfleet diner, three Bachmann Amfleet coaches, and a Kato or Con Cor Superliner diner. Why are there two diners on this train?
