CONWAY, S.C. (AP) - Drivers in Conway will no longer be able to yield they will now have to stop at railroad crossings as a short-line railroad resumes service between the two Carolinas.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reports the R.J. Corman Railroad Co. (https://bit.ly/1iBFCCE ) has bought the old Carolina Southern linking Horry County, South Carolina, and Columbus County, North Carolina.

The Carolina Southern closed most operations four years ago and when that happened, Conway replaced stop signs at several grade crossings with yield signs. But with the tracks expected to be back in use as early as November, town officials say the stop signs will again be replaced.

City officials say they will also speak with the new owners about other safety measures such as crossing gates and lights at grade crossings.
