Central of Georgia Roadbed (abandoned 1985)

In the distance, a person is seen walking the old roadbed of what was once the Central of Georgia Railroad on the line from Smithville, GA to Montgomery, AL.

Excerpt from http://www.american-rails.com/central-of-georgia-railway.html-

As a result, in 1895 the railroad emerged as the Central of Georgia Railway and continued its growth through acquisition. By the 1920s the railroad mostly reached its final length stretching from its home city of Savannah to as far west as Birmingham and Montgomery, Alabama; as far north as Atlanta and Chattanooga; and as far south as Albany, Georgia. For a railroad, which only operated in essentially two states and reached Chattanooga it operated an impressive 2,000+ mile system.

Great photo Walter would be great if the RR would be able to reuse the right of way or either pave it for use as a rail-trail..

Good morning Adam. Yes, it would be nice for it to be saved as a rail trail, but does not appear to be much interest.
