Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Freight Depot, 1910, Tifton

Tifton has more depots per capita than any other town I can think of in South Georgia, with four extant, plus another at the Georgia Museum of Agriculture.

The old Atlantic Coast Line Railroad freight depot has housed the Tifton Terminal Railway Museum since 2008; it has limited hours.

This Southern Railway passenger coach is identified with a Flint River sign. I’m not sure of its history at this time, but is likely a salvage.

    Great pictures. I remember catching an Atlantic Coast Line train in Cordele when I was eight (a teenage cousin accompanied me). it must have gone through Tifton. I caught a Southern train in Macon (with an aunt) late at night. I tried to stay up as long as could. I fell asleep after we went through Vienna. When I woke up we were outside of Jacksonville where we changed to Florida East Coast all the way to Miami. Thanks for these great memories.
