Cordele-- By popular demand, the SAM Shortline is going a bit off track in October.

Southwest Georgia's passenger train will be making a weekend trip to Savannah October 17th. In less than a year of operation, more than 14,000 people have ridden the excursion train.

Manager Kathy Odom says, "Oh, yes. Each time we expected between fifty and seventy-five passengers each ride. And on Saturdays we are averaging 250. So it's phenomenal."

The train runs three days a week, normally traveling through Cordele, Americus and Plains. Riders requested the special Savannah trip, that includes transportation, tours and a evening dining event.

For more information on the SAM Shortline, you can call toll-free at 877-427-2457.
