Railfanning Review: Cobb County’s Commuter Railroad: The Atlanta Northern Railway

Earlier this year, I spoke to the Georgia Archives about my book on the Atlanta Northern Railway. I took an opportunity to focus on some happenings that I researched at the state archives and the difficulty in determining the facts of history.

This podcast is an edited and condensed version of my presentation. Although some information didn’t make the final cut, I plan to use it in future episodes.
