  1. Thank you so much for sharing this. We’re going to take the train ride this weekend Lord willing. I just sent my daughter a message to see if they had plans so I can take their kiddos with me. We always have a great time on the ride and I get some cool photos! Click on link to see our last tour on it.

    Thanks again, I didn’t realize it was this weekend.

    1. That’s really cool Terri. We hope to ride the Shortline again during the holiday season. I clicked the link but it isn’t working for some reason. The Sam Shortline has something going on all the time, if you can’t make it this weekend, there is more!

  2. My friends and I hung out in Cordele when we were growing up. I also worked there. It’s only 20 or so miles from my hometown. Looks like a lot of great things happening in middle GA. I love seeing all the fun things to do. Would love to hit up those food trucks! 🙂

We enjoying hearing from you!
