The 'Magnolia Line': Another look at the history of the Port Royal Railroad

Flickr user Joi

As the tracks are stripped from the Port Royal Railroad and it is slowly converted into the Spanish Mosh Trail, The Island Packet's Erin Moody has picked up on another piece of the line's circa-1871 history: magnolia trees.

A magnolia still stands in the heart of old Port Royal, where the rail line started.

Take a read of the profile over here.

Update: A name change of the rail trail is being pursued.
