In 1907, a portion of the H&FS was leased to the Gulf Line Railway However, in 1913, the H&FS took over operations and fully absorbed the Gulf Line resulting in a line from Hawkinsville to Camilla, Georgia. In 1922, the H&FS went bankrupt. The section from Camilla to Ashburn, Georgia, was purchased by the Georgia, Ashburn, Sylvester and Camilla Railway but no buyers could be found for the remainder of the system and it was abandoned by 1923.””

DESCRIPTION: Dixie Pipeline Company Opelika – Alma (Spur Line), 6.625″” diameter, product type Highly Volatile Liquids (HVL), as in Propane, Butane, Ethane, E/P Mix, HVLs are hydrocarbons that have been pressurized to keep them in a liquid state. If a pipeline is punctured, the HVLs will escape and convert from a liquid to a gas. HVLs are heavier than air; therefore, if they escape from the pipeline, they will likely pool in low-lying areas. HVLs are highly flammable and will burn or explode if exposed to an ignition source. HVLs are dangerous and could be lethal if inhaled by humans or animals. http://www.enterpriseproducts.com/pipeline-safety/pipeline-viewer

DESCRIPTION: “Alapaha River camping at its finest. Catch huge catfish, gar, mudfish, and all the pan you fish you can think of, just steps away from your camp. Beautiful area to camp just 20 mins away from shopping and exploring the heart of South Georgia. You can fish for huge catfish, all night long, with the river just steps away. There are also two ponds you may fish in as well if the river current gets on your nerves. You can set up anywhere you like, near the river or away from it on the open lot by the tree line, lots of areas to choose from. You can drop a small boat or kayak in right from the bank of the river. This area of Georgia used to be the bottom of the ocean so there is lots of sand so even if it rains the ground do not stay wet for long. There is a lot of history in this area with agriculture and railways. Lots of people like to drive just a few minutes away to Fitzgerald and see the original brick streets and railway. Historic downtown Tifton is the closest town and has everything you need or want in a friendly southern town. Wild Adventures theme park is only about an hour away if a rollercoaster is on your mind. Do come to me for anything you may need or questions you have. Do fish in the ponds if you like. Do check the info mailbox by the camp area for contact info.””, “”Do not feed alligators that sometimes visit the area. Do not leave trash.”

HISTORIC FACTS: “”The Valdosta-Nashville section was built by the Douglas, Augusta & Gulf Railway and became part of G&F around 1906. G&F later became part of the Southern in 1963 and NS in 1990.[3] In early 2005 changes came to the branch as the Georgia Department of Transportation purchased the line from G&F, including an additional section of exempted track from Nashville to Willacoochee, 16.6 miles (26.7 km), owned by the city of Willacoochee. Under the agreement, G&F would continue to operate the line from Valdosta to Willachoochee. Cater Parrott Railnet now operates this line.[6] “”

HISTORIC FACTS: “”The earliest settlers marveled at the vast wetland and its swamps of ancient cypress trees. They also recognized the potential of the water as a source of power. Joshua Lee (1782-1855) settled on higher ground overlooking the wetland and in ca. 1830 built a low-level dam across a drainage stream. Water backed up behind the dam and what is now Banks Lake was formed. Lee used the water that poured from his dam as a power source for a grist mill. The water-driven wheel was first used for grinding grain but over time was also adapted to power both a sawmill and a cotton gin.”” https://www.exploresouthernhistory.com/bankslake.html
