Conyers: A City With Both Big and Small Locomotives

August 11, 2017 Todd DeFeo 0

CONYERS, Ga. — This small city of about 15,000 sits about 25 miles east of Atlanta and grew up along the Georgia Railroad. The depot in town was built circa 1891-92. Elsewhere in town, the Dinky locomotive is on display. The venerable steamer pays tribute to the former Milstead Railroad that ran between Downtown Conyers and the small community of Milstead.
