The N scale Georgia Great Southern is a 20' x 50' prototype-freelanced layout based on Southern Railway from the 1950's to 1970's between  Atlanta and  Mobile, AL.   The layout has over 400 feet of mainline and is designed for operations using car cards, train orders and Digitrax walk-around control.  The GGS was recently featured in the March/April 2013 issue of N Scale Model Railroading as well as the NMRA 2013 calendar, Walthers Catalog, and MR Trackside photos.
