Route of Royal Palm through Georgia : LUSENET : Southern Railway : One Thread

What was the route of the ROYAL PALM through Georgia on the way from Atlanta to Jacksonville? Was it Atlanta-Griffin-Barnesville-Macon-Cochran-Hazlehurst-Jesup-Everett-Bladen? Thanks in advance for your help. Also, I'd be interested to know when the last Atlanta-Jacksonville run was.

No, it ran through Stockbridge, McDonough, Macon, Cordele, and Valdosta.

Thanks. What was then the route from Valdosta to Jacksonville? Not via Waycross, I assume?

-- Raymond Hughes (, February 13, 2003.

It was Southern from Atlanta to Macon and GS&F (Southern subsidiary) from Macon to Jacksonville. From Valdosta, the GS&F goes east then southeast through Fargo, GA and Crawford, FL (well south of Waycross).

After checking references, it seems that the GS&F had no passenger diesels of their own.
