The Gainesville Midland Railroad
A Northeast Georgia short line

The Gainesville Midland Railroad was a short line from Gainesville to Athens in Northeast Georgia, with a branch to Winder.  Connections were with Southern at Gainesville, and Seaboard Air Line at Athens and Winder.  The Winder branch
(junction at Belmont, Georgia) is gone, and the main line is now the Gainesville
Midland subdivision, Atlanta division of CSX.

The sign is at Fowler Junction, where the GM connects to the Seaboard Air Line.

See the CSX map on the Roadmaster's page for location
