Central of Georgia - Railroad



Company History: The Georgia Central is the result of a 1990 spin-off from CSX. They run between Savannah and Macon, Georgia. These were former Macon Dublin & Savannah and Seaboard Air Line routes. Total length is 171 miles. At one time, they also ran a branch to Rochelle but that line was taken over by Georgia Southwestern in 1998. Traffic includes chemicals, coal, farm and forest products, minerals, stone, paper, plastics and pulp. The locomotive fleet over the years (about two dozen units) had been dominated by former CSX and NS GE U-boats. The GC joined the Genesee & Wyoming family of shortlines in 2005. Since then, the GE diesel fleet has largely been replaced with EMDs.

Successor/Parent History:
Genesee & Wyoming Inc. is an American short-line railroad holding company that owns or maintains interests in 120 railroads throughout five countries (the United States, Canada, Australia, Belgium, Netherlands and the United Kingdom), and operates more than 15,500 miles (24,900 km) of owned and leased track, with more than 3,300 miles (5,300 km) under additional track-access arrangements. The company had its roots in the Class III Genesee and Wyoming Railroad, which began in 1899.
