Safety - Courtesy - Service. This work is the definitive history of the first railroad to operate in the state of Georgia. Originating in Augusta, the line's terminus was set at a junction with the State Road, later known as the Western & Atlantic Railroad, where the infant town of Marthasville (later named Atlanta) was building. The Railroad played a major role in the development of the state of Georgia and a substantial role in the affairs of South-ern railroading in the mid- to late nineteenth century. The history includes lull rosters for engines and passenger equipment; station lists for the main and branch lines, complete with the attributes of each stop; and brief histories of the subsidiary compa-nies. Anecdotal stories of the road add wonderful color to the text. Possibly best of all are the pho-tographs-over 360 of them.
