Conyers: A City With Both Big and Small Locomotives

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.
