The northern part (north of Williamson) of the Fort Valley line was abandoned I beleive around 1940.

...Wouldn't that have been south of Williamson?

-- Elton (, February 15, 2004.

No. The line originally went from just South of Atlanta, branching off from the Southern main at "Roseland" (near the Federal Prison), crossed the CofG east of Hapeville, and south through Riverdale, Fayetteville, etc before getting to Williamson.
