Georgia, Florida & Alabama Railway
1913 map, Richland Area

For a number of years the GF&A ran parallel to the Seaboard's Columbus-Albany line from Richland south to Kimbrough, which was just east of the Stewart/Webster county line. At Kimbrough the GF&A turned to the southwest towards Cuthbert, while the Seaboard continued southeast to Albany. After Seaboard acquired the GF&A in the late 1920s, it used the latter's Richland-Kimbrough tracks and abandoned its own.
