The Chapter’s activities include promoting awareness of the history of railway transportation, participating in activities related to the Best Friend of Charleston (including its preservation and the preservation of Southern Railway artifacts displayed in the Best Friend Museum), excursions, visiting other museums and helping with the functions of the South Carolina Railroad Museum that is located near Winnsboro, SC on the former Rockton & Rion trackage. The CCNRHS were the founding fathers of the SCRM and furnished much of the rolling stock to SCRM, including a dining car and the 1927 Baldwin and Branchville, Steam Engine #44 that SCRM at one time operated.
