The Register & Glennville began in 1895 as a logging road owned by the Perkins Lumber Company. In 1902, it was converted into a common carrier and renamed the Register and Glennville Railroad. After entering receivership in 1914, the line was sold and renamed the East Georgia Railway. It was abandoned in 1919.
