Georgia, Ashburn, Sylvester & Camilla Railroad
South Georgia businessman J.N. Pidcock organized the GAS&C Railway in May, 1922 to purchase the Ashburn-Camilla line from the Gulf Line Railway which was owned by the Hawkinsville and Florida Southern. The HF&S had entered receivership and was ordered to be sold. Pidcock operated the GAS&C as part of his Georgia Northern Railway system.
In 1966 Southern Railway took over the line and, in 1972, merged it and the Albany & Northern into the Georgia Northern
