Maptech software puts RR @ 3371', US highway 23 & 74 @ 3381'. A Google
search lists it @ 3314, another @ 3551 (wrongo), GSM Railroad shows it
at 3100' - take your choice.

Southern always said highest standard gauge east of Mississippi. They
used to have a little sign right beside the railroad, I don't know if
it's still there or not. Probably in a collection somewhere. Probably
be listed on Ebay one day. I'll probably get outbid.
