Travel from downtown Cordele, GA through the rolling farm lands of southern Georgia to President Jimmy Carter’s hometown of Plains, Georgia. Explore the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site Museum, the train depot Campaign Headquarters, The Billy Carter Service Station & Museum, shop the retail stores on Main Street and sample the awesome peanut butter ice cream.
The SAMShortline Excursion Train is an unmatched travel experience for you, friends and family. Georgia’s only rolling state park combines the rich history of the area and classic railroad travel with pleasure and relaxation. The vintage train cars vary in ambiance but all provide climate-controlled comfort and large windows to view the passing Southwest Georgia scenery. Three new luxury private cars have now been added to the train to provide a vantage point you’ll find nowhere else.
