Old Camp Durant and Neuse, NC
L: Old Neuse Station on the Seaboard Air Line Railroad. R: The station is still there, but now used by a
cable installation business. Today the Seaboard is part of CSX (Chessie-Seaboard System) and frieight
trains still run by the station on the way to Wake Forest and Henderson further north, but the train but
doesn't stop here anymore. The passing track that used to be here as late as 1968 has been removed
(although there is a very small spur sometimes used temporarily for track maintenance equipment). This
rail route was originally the second oldest RR in North Carolina, the Raleigh and Gaston.
At one time, Neuse, NC, also had its own post office. The sign for Neuse, NC, was still there until they
widened Durant Road to 4 lanes. Now it is part of Raleigh, NC, with Windser Forest and Durant Trails
subdivisions and Raleigh Fire Station 22 where the communityh of Neuse used to be. The Community of
Neuse Crossing was a mile east at the intersection of Highway 1 and Durant Road (which used to be
Neuse Road, until the name was changed to avoid confusion with Falls of the Neuse, etc.).
