CENTRAL OF GEORGIA RAILWAY 661

This 56 seat lightweight coach was built by American Car & Foundry in 1947 for the Central of Georgia Railroad. The car was the 2nd in a class of cars built for use on the “Nancy Hanks II”, a passenger train running between Atlanta, GA and Savannah, GA, along with coaches 390, 662, and 907, also in the TVRM collection. The 661 saw many years of service for the Central of Georgia Railroad and successor Southern Railway before ownership was transferred to the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum.
