The Athens Line operates on former Southern Railway tracks between Center, in Jackson County, and Athens. It is owned by Bennie Ray Anderson, who also owns the Great Walton Railroad and the Hartwell Railroad Company. The latter railroad operates the Athens Line.
On the south side of downtown Athens, the railroad passes by Sanford Stadium to deliver coal to the University of Georgia's power plant. The former Central of Georgia tracks extend as far south as Madison with services provided down to Bishop.
