The Western and Atlantic Railroad has a long rich history as a strategic railroad link for commerce and, during the Civil War, of military importance. More recently this was part of the L&N and now this line is a vital artery for CSX with routes from Nashville and Chattanooga converging at C.P. Junta in Cartersville where we pick up the action. Here traffic funneled south to Atlanta and other points in the Southeast.
The program is arranged in geographical order and covers the W&A Sub for 21 miles through beautiful North Georgia countryside from Cartersville to Kennesaw. Other locations include Acworth and Emerson.
We also pay a visit to “The General’s historical exhibit. 37 trains are featured. Subtitles provide train information.
