A restored locomotive has been placed at the Swamp Rabbit Station in front of the Steamer Car. It was built in 1942 and used at a copper mine for 20 years. It was restored by David Wilkerson’s Motive Power and Equipment Solutions Inc. company, and donated to Greenville County.

It was difficult to choose just one item, but the thing I would miss most about Greenville would be the Swamp Rabbit Trail. Being well maintained and patrolled it’s great for walking, running, and biking. There’s a variety of terrain – from the flat converted rail bed to the rolling hills of the Conestee area. It ranges from the urban environment in Greenville to the deep nature of Lake Conestee Nature Park which includes over 1800 feet of boardwalk. There’s a great choice of dining along the trail in the city of Greenville or Travelers Rest. I’ve been able to mix regular trail activities into my overall fitness program to maintain interest.
Other items that I would miss but I couldn’t match a good photo would be friends, the pedestrian-friendly tree lined streets of downtown Greenville, the fantastic selection of restaurants, and the view of Falls Park from the Liberty suspension bridge.
