Georgia & Florida Railroad

Georgia shortline

The origins of the Georgia & Florida Railroad date back to 1906, when a former president of the Seaboard Air Line Railway developed the company for purchasing, building, and operating six lines in three states. Eventually, the GF main line stretched from Madison, Florida, across southeast Georgia, northeastward to Greenwood, South Carolina. The Southern Railway gained control of the road in 1963, reorganized it as the Georgia and Florida Railway, and merged it into subsidiary Central of Georgia Railroad in 1971.
