The Edgefield, Trenton and Aiken Railroad was a railroad that served South Carolina immediately after the end of the Reconstruction Era of the United States.

Creation[edit]

In 1879, the charter of the Edgefield Branch Railroad was amended to change the line's name to the Edgefield, Trenton and Aiken Railroad Company. The Edgefield Branch Railroad was incorporated to build a railroad line between Edgefield Court House, South Carolina, to Trenton, South Carolina, where it could connect with the Charlotte, Columbia and Augusta Railroad.[1]

Route[edit]

Merger[edit]

The Edgefield, Trenton and Aiken joined together with the Atlantic and French Broad Valley Railroad in 1882 to form the French Broad and Atlantic Railway.[2]
