Cordele- The SAM Shortline is an excursion train. The passenger train takes tourists on an 84 mile trip.
"I've just been waiting for the invitation, and about two weeks ago, I received my invitation to be a part of this opening day, and I said there's no way I'm missing this," says Douglas Welcome Center Manager Pattie Kirkland.
The train departs from Cordele, traveling through Leslie, Americus, and Plains to reach Archery before turning around and heading back. So why would anyone want to spend 7 to 8 hours on a train when they could drive there in less than an hour.
"It a way to slow down and enjoy the scenery. You're traveling past beautiful farms and pecan trees and flower nurseries, and so you just slow down and appreciate what you're seeing," says Public Affairs Coordinator Kim Hatcher.
Tuesday's trip was for tourism to welcome center employees. SAM Shortline will operate Fridays through Mondays until December. The price for the tickets are 20 dollars for adults and 10 for children. First class seats are extra.
