In the 1990s, RailTex, Inc., of San Antonio, Texas, owned and operated a number of short line railroads across the nation. Initially, three of these were in Georgia: the Georgia Southwestern Railroad, the Georgia and Alabama Railroad, and the Georgia Great Southern Railroad. The latter two were consolidated into the Georgia Southwestern in 1995.

On February 4, 2000, RailTex was acquired by RailAmerica, Inc. of Jacksonville, Florida.
