There was an elevated coal track at the former Mathers Mill [?] in Greenville. The piers are/were at the end of N.Water Street. The track was only reason one or two six wheel switchers were still on the roster until the end of steam. The track was put out of service soon after the end of steam, I do not think B&LE serviced it many times with diesel switchers [281 may have been light enough].
I ran across a story from 1954 or 1955 of one of the concrete piers collapsing killing two boys, so I think it was out of service then.
At the former Greenville Lumber & Supply was one track with one or two pits for hopper unloading. The conveyors were still around when I was a kid for several years after the last car got dumped there.
