Georgia & Florida Railway

GFRR locomotive

The shortline Georgia & Florida Railway, a subsidiary of OmniTrax, operates several lines in south Georgia, primarily in the area between Albany and Valdosta. Among these are the former Atlantic Coast Line tracks from Albany to Thomasville and from Albany to Sylvester, former Georgia Northern from Albany to Moultrie and Sparks, and former South Georgia from Adel to Perry, FL.

Until mid-2012, GFR also operated former Georgia & Florida Railway tracks between Willacoochee and Valdosta. These were subleased to CaterParrott Railnet.

Georgia & Florida Railway was known as Georgia & Florida Railnet before it was purchased in 2004 by OmniTRAX. An earlier name used by the shortline in the 1990s was Georgia & Florida Railroad.

This rail company should not be confused with the Georgia & Florida Railway of 1906-1963.
