Historic Rail Depot and Train Watching
315 Plant Avenue
Waycross GA 31501
Waycross' former Union Station is one of Georgia's largest remaining railroad stations. Built in 1911, it primarily served the Atlantic Coast Line. The city was a major junction for the ACL as well as for the earlier Plant System, which the ACL acquired in 1902.
The depot stands on Plant Avenue, named for southeastern railroad builder Henry Bradley Plant. Don't don’t forget to step out the back of the Historic Depot to enjoy the sunshine and take in a bit of train watching as the CSX trains travel to and from the largest of 9 classification yards on the CSX transportation network located nearby. The Waycross Rice Yard covers 850 acres in Ware County and contains about 150 miles of track.
