Special to SEGAZINE
Railwatch 2013 will have plenty of activities for train fanciers and Charlton Countians, alike.
Saturday’s event will feature a lot more than just watching trains, including a pancake breakfast, and a special presentation on the history of railroading in the swamp. All events are free and open to the public.
The presentation, given by Bob Izlar, director of the UGA Center for Forest Business, will focus on the operations of the Waycross & Southern Railroad which was a subsidiary of the Hebard Lumber Company in their rail logging of the Okefenokee Swamp from 1910 -1927.
