Since 1833, there have been 346 railroads that operated at one time or another in the State of Georgia. Many of these lines were absorbed by larger or competitor railroads in the intervening decades, and the lineage of any particular track in the state can be difficult to track. After over 40 years of research, author and memorabilia collector Bob Hanson has compiled this thorough encyclopedia-style book covering the histories and operating areas for all 346 of Georgia’s railroads. Illustrated with maps, photos, documents, and memorabilia, this book is a must-have for those interested in the lineage and history of railroading in the Peach State.
