THE NEWNAN PASSENGER TRAIN STATION
Newnan Train Station
The Newnan passenger train station is shown in this old photograph as it appeared in 1970. It was provided by Merrill S. Hughie, who was a railway clerk at this depot for 42 years for both the A&WP Railway and the Central of Georgia (Southern Railway) system. The "Man O' War," a deluxe passenger train with service from Atlanta to Columbus, made its final stop at this station in Newnan, on May 16, 1970. Mr. Hughie bid farewell to the train on that date and retired from the railroad system.
