The thirteen original structures remaining mark what was the immense repair facility of the Central Georgia Railway constructed between 1850 and 1860. The concrete seams on the foundations mark this growth and are reminiscent of growth rings on a tree.

Surviving are the roundhouse, turntable, repair shops, freight house, 126’ brick smokestack, passenger station, and stationary steam engines. Most areas are open to the public and provide some insight into the maintenance required on a large fleet of steam locomotives. A short but memorable train ride on the grounds began at the roundhouse and included a short spin on the turntable. Dozens of Georgia rail lines were reduced through mergers, acquisitions, and abandonments during the long decline of railroads after WWII.

The grounds spread over about 5 city blocks and remain the largest and oldest 19th century operating railroad complex in the U.S. The roundhouse contains ornate brick and iron work and at one time was a full 360 degrees but now only about a fourth of that remains.


The Museum rotates their three working steam locomotives for this duty and we drew a small industrial stream engine.
The Savannah Repair Shops were closed in 1963 after acquisition of the Central Georgia by Southern Railways.
Much of the area is designated a National Historic Landmark and is adjacent to the Georgia History Museum. During later periods of nonuse, the missing sections of the roundhouse were looted for the rare and sought-after “Savannah gray bricks.” These bricks were cast by slaves on a nearby plantation until the gray clay deposit was exhausted. The tour included access to refurbished executive and dining cars, coaches and a baggage car. We experienced little waiting on our off-season visit and the staff seemed to offer genuine Southern hospitality.
