CONWAY, S.C. (AP) - The first trains on a revived short line railroad linking the Carolinas are expected to begin running next week.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reports (https://bit.ly/1T91Hbl) that the R.J. Corman Railroad Co. plans to have its first regional trains running from Mullins to Chadbourn, North Carolina, next week. Service in Horry County would begin the first week in April.

Corman bought the old Carolina Southern railroad last year for $14 million. The Carolina Southern had shut down operations in 2011 because some railroad bridges did not meet federal standards.

Corman had expected the first rains to be running by the end of 2015 but that was delayed because of last year’s flooding. The railroad has about 100 miles of track linking the Carolinas.
