Ocilla & Worth Railroad

In its December 2, 1899 issue, Railway World included this note: "The Mystic and Ocilla Railroad has been completed between Mystic and Ocilla and a regular schedule put on." The M&O may have been a predecessor of the Ocilla & Worth, which was established around the same time.

The owners of the Ocilla & Worth planned to connect Ocilla, in Irwin County, with the Georgia Southern & Florida Railroad at Worth, a few miles north of Ashburn. Sometime around 1900, the O&W was reorganized as the Ocilla & Irwinville.
