Book: Early South Georgia Railroading by AH Clark : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread

I would be grateful for a description of the book titled "Fifty-one Years, 1925-1976: A History of Early South Georgia Railroading". It was authored by Agnes Hilsman Clark. The editor and publisher was James F. Clark. The book is two hundred ninety-six pages long. Does it focus on southeast, south-central, or southwest Georgia? How about its coverage of ACL, SAL, predecessors, or affiliate roads? Is this a hardbound book? I assume it is long out-of-print. Ed Faggart Lincolnton, NC

I have that book, Ed. Its not bad at all. It is the personal recollections of a man who worked for various railroads in south Georgia over the period 1925-1976. The man worked primarily for the ACL (later SCL) but also worked for some of the Pidcock lines as well. May have also worked for the South Georgia, but I don't really recall without reading the book again.

Hope this answers your question.
