G&W operates the Georgia Central across the peach state. I also see they have the Riceboro Southern grouped in with that same operation. Is the GC power used on the Riceboro Sou? If not what do they have for power? And did Riceboro Southern have anything of its own previously?

At last report they were using GC power but they may be using RailLink units now, GC is desperately power short with the upswing in business and repoed several of their units that RailLink had been using in Savannah. Now if only they could get back their units from Mexico....(will never happen)
Riceboro Southern is a fairly new operation, they never had any home road power. The line is a stub of the former SAL S-Line and dead ends at the paper mill in Riceboro, a very remote line, passing mainly through marshland and woods, so rarely photographed.
