Georgia Eastern Railway

Built sometime before 1904, the Georgia Eastern was a logging railroad owned by E. Swindell & Company. Running 18 miles from Swindell Landing to Mount Royal (northeast of Bainbridge), it was used primarily for hauling logs to the Swindell sawmill. Company offices were in Bainbridge.

The line was bought by Bainbridge Northeastern Railway in 1908 and abandoned in 1910.
