What's in the Name

South End was home to Charlotte’s first railroad line in the mid-1800’s, connecting us to Columbia and Charleston, SC.  “Link & Pin” is an old railroad term. A “Link” was installed on one railcar then, as the two railcars were joined, a “Pin” was manually inserted into the other railcar’s link, holding the two railcars together. Since we are in Historic South End and on a light rail stop, we felt the name Link & Pin was a good fit.
