Central of Georgia Railroad 907

Constructed in 1947 by the American Car and Foundry, this lightweight coach was originally made for the Central of Georgia Railroad and given the number 543. It served on the “Nancy Hanks II,” a passenger train that traveled between Atlanta and Savannah, Georgia. Eventually, the coach became part of the Central of Georgia Railroad’s successor, the Southern Railway, where it was renumbered 907.

The 907 coach bears similarities to the 906 model, as both were initially segregated or “Jim Crow” cars, featuring a dividing wall. However, once the era of segregation on railroads came to an end, the dividing wall was removed, transforming the coach into a standard car. Today, the only remaining evidence of its segregated history is the presence of two sets of restrooms at each end of the car.
