Darien and Western Railroad

In 1894 the Darien and Western Railroad was established to take over operations of the Darien Short Line which had gone bankrupt. The D and W operated a 32-mile (51 km) line between Darien and Middleton, Georgia, US, beginning in 1895 and then as far as Ludowici, Georgia, in 1904. It became part of a multi-railroad merger in 1906 that resulted in the Georgia Coast and Piedmont Railroad.
