South Carolina Picture Project

Taking the Amtrak – Charleston to Kingstree, South Carolina

South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Williamsburg County Photos  |  Taking the Amtrak

In November 2008, we decided to take the train for our trip from Charleston to Kingstree. We rode the Palmetto, both in the morning and on our return trip later that evening.

We found Amtrak to have on-time service, friendly personnel, and clean accommodations. The relaxed atmosphere, roomy seats, and panoramic windows made it easy to enjoy South Carolina’s rural scenery.

Taking the Amtrak – Add Info and More Photos

The purpose of the South Carolina Picture Project is to celebrate the beauty of the Palmetto State and create a permanent digital repository for our cultural landmarks and natural landscapes. We invite you to add additional pictures (paintings, photos, etc) of Taking the Amtrak, and we also invite you to add info, history, stories, and travel tips. Together, we hope to build one of the best and most loved SC resources in the world!

I traveled on the Palmetto from Savannah to New York, and apart from passing towns and buildings which were definitely American, the tree-lined route reminded me of parts of England, which was not what I had come for but still interesting. Great trip.

Great article on train travel with Kingstree! It has shown to be a busy passenger train station. I was the Amtrak Marketing Representative for thirty years. Amtrak and Kingstree Travel were great partners and wonderful folks to work. Keep riding the trains and fill those seats and accommodations. Thanks for the memories. Really miss my patrons and business partners!
