The 'Carolinian' stops at Selma, North Carolina on the way from Charlotte to New York using the connection from former Southern rails to the Atlantic Coast Line.

Neat video! Good gawd those P-42’s are louuuuud and smoke like hell, too... Think about it... They’re as old as the power NRPC inherited in ‘71 and verrrrrry tired — NOT tier 4 compliant and way too much diesel exhaust fumes to inhale on regular basis. They will need to be replaced soon! Love your video ( but first thought is Alabama, not North Carolina), but then again Selma, Alabama has a branchline going through town— NO Amtrak.

Enjoyed watching, especially since I once visited Selma with NO train activity. Passenger boarding seemed to be a time consuming process.

Selma, N.C. was a railroad town from the start, although ACL didn't come through town until the Contentnea-Pee Dee cutoff was built in 1885.

Selma, Ala., from pre-railroad years, is the older and larger of the two. Ironically it was founded and named by a North Carolinian. Last passenger train was Southern's Goldenrod between Birmingham and Mobile, discontinued in 1959.

122 sounds like it's about to pack it in.
