Colonel's Island Railroad

The Colonel's Island Railroad was constructed by the State of Georgia as part of a Brunswick port development project in the late 1960s. It operated 33 miles of track including 12.6 miles of mainline trackage between Anguilla Junction and the Georgia Ports Authority’s Colonel’s Island Bulk and Auto Processing Terminal near Brunswick.

The railroad was an unincorporated association wholly owned by the Ports Authority. On June 9, 1998, the association ceased operations after selling most of its assets to the new operator of the line, the Golden Isles Terminal Railroad. The Ports Authority retained ownership of the trackage.
