Product Details

Green Frog is proud to present an often requested DVD...The Atlanta Railroads, Their History and Their Story. This beautiful documentary covers the phenomenal history of the railroad capitol of the south.

A city 'born of the railroad', Atlanta's history is traced from it's beginnings as a terminus for the state owned Western & Atlantic. We continue with the development and growth of many lines such as the Nashville, Chattanooga & St. Louis; the Louisville & Nashville; the Southern; the Central of Georgia; the Atlantic Coast Line; the Seaboard Air Line; and the Georgia Railroad (to name just a few).

Most of these lines merged to form the CSX and Norfolk Southern railroads and you will see their modern operations through a city handling 200 trains per day.

The story is told in documentary fashion ( similar to the critically acclaimed Civil War series seen on PBS). Noted Atlanta historians Franklin M. Garret and Col. Jim Bogle provide a unique look into a rich railroad history as shown through rare film and unpublished photos from numerous collections.

Professional narration is provided by Hollywood and TV actor Dan Chandler. and Atlanta resident. Nowhere has the growth of railroading in the south been covered as in this DVD!
