Hey! What's the latest news on the St. Marys RR's plans for the Pearson Sub? I've heard something about an excursion train being planned for use on the Sub. Fact or fiction?

I saw some boxcars in St. Mary's colors in Folkston recently and with an area painted over and ATW as the mark..ATW is the reporting marks of Georgia Railcar, a division of Railroad Management of Panama City, FL, which operates the Georgia Central, the Bay Line, the Valdosta Rwy, and the AN Rwy, just in this area. Earl Durden has been buying up cars owned by other short lines, like the AN's and the SM's, to add to his fleet. He's one of the few competitors left to GE Railcar in the boxcar lease market. He owns or leases the Atlantic & Western, too.
