Athens Railroad

In the latest issue of Railfan and Railroad, I learned that  the railroad that operates in Athens,GA will be shutting down. It’s is owned by the Hartwell Railroad and its primary operation was to bring coal to the University of Georgia’s power plant.The last train in december finished a stockpile for the boiler until it shuts down this Fall. It is going to be replaced with anew electrode boiler after. I’ve only seen it once on a trip to Athens, but Im sure that Athens is sad to see it go. Bye Bye its sad to see you  leave. Another railroad gone is always a sad occurrence.
