This trackage is the ex Central of Georgia Rome to Chattanooga main line. Now owned by the state of Georgia and operated by the C&C Railway which in turn is owned by the Genessee and Wyoming family.

Thanks for the video. I did not know 4501 was still in service.

For the younger members (anyone under 60). Southern 4501 was one of the first steam engines that was restored for mainline service. It was restored by the Southern Railroad in its own shops.
