Built for High Speed: A Brief History of the Atlanta Northern Railway


In stock



For more than four decades, the Atlanta Northern Railway transported passengers between Atlanta and Marietta. The Atlanta Northern, owned by a precursor of Georgia Power, provided an invaluable transportation link for workers employed by industries along the line. Little remains of the former Atlanta-to-Marietta line, its right-of- way obliterated by modern development and its history largely forgotten. Todd DeFeo is the author of several railroad history books, including the first-ever complete histories of the Memphis, Clarksville & Louisville and the Indiana, Alabama & Texas; and Western & Atlantic railroads.
