SB Line (Norfolk Southern)

The SB Line is a railroad line owned and operated by the Norfolk Southern Railway in the U.S. state of South Carolina. It runs from Kingville northerly via Camden and Lancaster to Rock Hill, [Federal Railroad Administration, [http://safetydata.fra.dot.gov/OfficeofSafety/Downloads/Default.asp?page=downloaddbf.asp Highway-Rail Crossing Inventory Files] ] though large parts are abandoned. The only pieces still used by Norfolk Southern are from the SC Line at Kingville to Wateree and from the Catawba River to the R Line and B Line in Rock Hill. The piece between Kershaw and the Catawba River is now owned by the Lancaster and Chester Railway.

The short piece to Wateree serves a Duke Energy plant.
