RailGa.com Makes Georgia’s Railroad Past Come Alive

I’m sincerely embarrassed that I didn’t know anything about this website prior to this morning.

While looking for railroad tourism inspiration for the previous post, I came across a fantastic website, Railga.com. The site has been around much longer than this one – 10 years! – and is chock-full of history and beautiful pictures from Georgia’s railroad past and present.

Every thing from maps, to the histories of individual rail lines, to an AMAZING pictoral list of every railroad depot in the state, to the best train-watching locations, to the official and unofficial nicknames of Georgia’s rail lines; the site is a virtual treasure trove for the rail history buff.

Seriously, take a minute and check it out.  You won’t be disappointed.  It may even inspire you to visit a Georgia town you never knew existed!

  1. Thanks for this article. In my search to find an operating steam engine within a day’s journey, I found that the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad currently has their steam engine under repair with no estimated completion date. However, I found that Dollywood has an operating coal fired steam engine. I would go just for that – maybe only that! Too bad Six Flags over GA no longer has a real steam engine.
