GSWR Questions
Author: twropr

Where does the Georgia Southwestern operate to/fr?
Where do they connect with CSX, NS and Heart of Georgia? When do they operate? What is their radio frequency? Do they still have a locomotive painted in Central of Georgia colors?
Thanks
Andy

The map at the link will show you the lines and interchanges.

The CofG painted locomotives are no more.  Those were painted under the independent operation prior to the sale to Genesee & Wyoming.  G&W has cobbled several of its acquired lines in the region into a single system of sorts, connected by trackage rights.  

I have lost track of their operating times and crew bases.  Much has changed as some of these railroads have blended their operations under G&W.  Hopefully someone can provide more info there.

The ex-CN FP9 units in the CofG-like scheme last ran on GSWR around 2008. Sold to Larry's Truck (LTEX) then to Texas State Railroad. One of them in use, the other not sure (a parts donor?).
