Topeka junction : LUSENET : Southern Railway : One Thread

I was on hwy 36 in Upson county a few weeks ago, next to the ex- CofG line to Thomaston, and there is an old store called "Topeka Junction"...something. I have heard of Topeka Junction, where, I don't know. I am assuming it is where Sou crossed CofG. I can see a distinct tree line like a possibility of old roadbed on the south side of the store there. Am I correct here? I know the Ft. Valley line had to come in somewhere, and thought this might be it. Any pictures or history any of you guys can share with me?? Thank you!!

Elton, You are correct. That is where the Atlanta & Ft. Valley crossed the Upson County Railroad or SR crossed CGA. I believe UCR had a flag stop/platform at Topeka Jct. The old SR line can be seen on both sides of CGA/highway, or at least it could be seen 5-6 years ago.
